McFadden, a cornerback out of San Diego State, is expected to compete for a starting spot across from Joe Haden, the Browns' first-round pick in 2010. Although he's a bit undersized, McFadden is more than capable of playing man-to-man coverage.
In April, Dan Kadar of SB Nation's Mocking the Draft graded Cleveland's selection of McFadden an A-plus. Here's what he had to say:
The Browns had to find a cornerback to play opposite Joe Haden and did so with the San Diego State product. McFadden is used to playing on an island and will have to do so in Cleveland.
With the signing of McFadden, Cleveland's first-round pick, Barkevious Mingo, is the only draft pick who still needs to sign a contract. Rookies reported to Browns camp on Friday, but with full-team practices still a few days away, Mingo has plenty of time to get to camp.
