According to sources at Pro Football Talk and the National Football Post, the Cleveland Browns have been very busy with their pre-draft workouts. We have already reported the visits of quarterbacks Cam Newton of Auburn and TCU’s Andy Dalton, but what about the other positions?â†µ
With the sixth pick, I think the guys right now that the Browns are looking at in terms of pre-draft private workouts are LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson, Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller, and the aforementioned Newton. The Browns are also looking closer at Wisconsin offensive tackle Gabe Carimi, who is projected as a mid-late first round pick. They could probably trade down and still get him if they wanted him.â†µ
The Browns have also scheduled a private workout with Arizona defensive end Brooks Reed, who is right now being considered a late first round pick, but the Browns might be able to get him with their early second round choice.â†µ
Some other interesting names on the list are Oklahoma running back DeMarco Murray, a speedster who would compliment Peyton Hillis. Murray has battled injuries throughout his career but he has a ton of ability, and could be good value in the third round.â†µ
Reports also indicate the Browns are looking at two defensive backs—Miami’s DeMarcus Van Dyke and South Carolina’s Chris Culliver. Both players are expected to be mid-late round picks.
