CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The No. 1 question facing the Cleveland Browns with the NFL Draft less than 3 weeks away isn’t who they will pick at No. 4.
It’s which quarterback will they take and when?
The Browns are in the home stretch of their draft preparation and have a caravan of quarterbacks rolling through Berea this week.
Their approach has been unique. Top team officials skipped some pro days and focused their attention on the private workouts and visits.
The Browns have worked out and or visited with at least 11 quarterback prospects since the NFL Combine at the end of February.
Saturday morning they concluded their workout schedule of the top quarterbacks by traveling to College Station, Texas to work out Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel. Manziel visited the Browns in Berea on Wednesday along with Keith Wenning of Ball State.
Per league rules, the Browns can’t work players out at their facility in Berea but are permitted up to 30 pre-draft visits.
The Browns hosted Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater, Alabama’s A.J. McCarron and University of Central Florida’s Blake Bortles on Monday and Tuesday and Fresno State’s Derek Carr and Georgia’s Aaron Murray are also due in town later this week for a visit.
The Browns have also worked out and or visited with Eastern Illinois’ Jimmy Garoppolo, Pittsburgh’s Tom Savage, Miami’s Stephen Morris and Brock Jensen from North Dakota State.
General manager Ray Farmer, head coach Mike Pettine, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains have been racking up the frequent flier miles to work them all out over the last month.
