Former Arizona Wildcats corner Trevin Wade was taken 245th overall as the 38th pick in the seventh round by the Cleveland Browns on Saturday.

The Wildcats' recruit was hardly a story when he joined Arizona as a low-rated prospect, but he made himself into a premier corner by his junior season thanks to his ball-hawking ability.

Wade enthralled Wildcat fans in his freshman year and sophomore year only to struggle during his junior season, but he found peace during his senior season, in which he quietly led a 4-8 squad in the defensive backfield. And while that sounds unimpressive as a whole, Wade wasn't one to embarrass himself during a treacherous season when Mike Stoops was fired.

Thought he only had three interceptions in the last two seasons, Wade recorded 12 through his college career.

Looking forward, there's little reason to think Wade won't make a mark in Cleveland's training camp considering his nose for the ball. And in the seventh round, he's of little consequence as a draft pick.
