Berea, OH (Sports Network) - The Cleveland Browns and third-round draft choice Leon McFadden came to terms on Friday, with the rookie defensive back receiving a four-year contract from the club.

The San Diego State product was the 68th overall selection in this year's NFL Draft and is expected to compete with Chris Owens for the starting cornerback slot opposite Joe Haden.

During his four years at school, McFadden started 45 of 51 games and registered 188 tackles, eight interceptions and three sacks. He also notched a school record with 39 pass deflections.

Earlier on Friday, Cleveland signed seventh round selection defensive lineman Armonty Bryant. Linebacker and No. 6 overall pick Barkevious Mingo is the team's only draft choice not yet under contract.
