4. Browns S Ronnie Harrison

If Browns safety John Johnson III is trending the wrong way, then so is fellow safety Ronnie Harrison.

Harrison currently carries a grade of 52.7. He’s not defending the pass well, as he’s certainly been to blame for some of the Browns’ blown coverages on wide-open touchdowns this season.

Unfortunately, Harrison hasn’t been playing the run well, either, which is surprising. When the Browns traded for him, he was thought more of more as a strong safety, stout against the run.

Again, as was stated with Johnson, the buck stops with Joe Woods for not putting his players in the best position to be successful. There aren’t any excuses considering the amount of money the Brown front office dumped into the defensive side of the ball.

Interestingly, Harrison split time with Grant Delpit at the second safety spot against Denver, with each player logging 29 snaps.

Harrison finished 2020 as the Browns fourth-highest graded defender (74.0). He didn’t just forget how to play. Woods needs to get his safeties going.
