Skrine was selected in the 5th round (137th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. In August 2011, Browns coach Pat Shurmur praised Skrine's performance in the pre-season: "Buster competes. He's a scrappy guy. A real gym rat. You see him flash. Neither one is intimidated by the other. It's been good."

Skrine joined the second team defense in 2012, listed as the second left cornerback behind Pro Bowler Joe Haden. He broke out as a full-time player, playing in all 16 games and finishing with 85 tackles and 11 pass deflections. He came up big against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers in week 12, recovering a fumble that helped the Browns win 20-14 at home.

Amid coaching changes that included Head Coach Pat Shurmur being replaced with Rob Chudzinski, and Ray Horton being hired as the new defensive coordinator, Buster Skrine became the starting right cornerback across from Joe Haden at left cornerback. Skrine finished the season with 65 tackles, including his first career sack. He also had one interception and a career-high 18 passes defended.

2014 season
