"I was happy my dream was coming true," said Joe Haden.

The Brown's first draft pick's enthusiam was just as excited as he arrived in Cleveland as he was Thursday night, just hours after the draft.

"I love the Browns, like the Browns a lot. I felt a connection with the coaches especially the coach for my position. He called me to tell me he was excited to coach me and I'm excited to play for him."

Haden's first order of business is to check out everything Cleveland has to offer.

"I want to look around to see where I'm gonna stay."
