The rumblings that a top ten pick did not want to play for the Cleveland Browns first popped up at the NFL Combine in February. Now, according to one NFL reporter, the agents for three separate top ten picks have said they do not want to play for the Browns.
I have now heard from three agents, all with Top 10 picks, who don't want to play for the #Browns.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) March 21, 2012
The Browns hold the fourth overall pick in this April's draft, and there's far from a consensus on projections of what they will do now that Robert Griffin III is likely off the board with the Redskins trading up. There was some indication that Justin Blackmon, the dynamic wide receiver from Oklahoma State, preferred not to play for the Browns but that has not been corroborated.
