Cleveland Browns top pick Joe Haden could be getting close to cracking the starting lineup.
Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan gave the rookie cornerback a ringing endorsement Friday.
"Joe could start any day," said Ryan. "We're just going to line him up and play him. Whether he starts or gets his name called when they announce it, that's another thing. Is the guy good enough to start? [Heck] yes. He's good enough to start for any team in the league, including ours."
Ryan praised Haden's game against the Jets, one in which he stepped in for the injured Sheldon Brown and played 87 snaps on defense and another 20 on special teams.
