NFL Draft 2012: Cleveland Browns Hosting Pair Of Running Backs, According To Report

The Cleveland Brows will host Virginia Tech running back David Wilson and Boise State running back Doug Martin, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

(Just to be clear -- Wilson went to Virginia Tech, not Virginia, as the tweet says.)

The Browns have a pair of first-round picks -- No. 4 and No. 22. Some experts project the Browns to take Alabama running back Trent Richardson with the No. 4 pick. Others, though, think the Browns will nab Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon, which would leave a void at running back and make Wilson and Martin options at No. 22.

Wilson quietly put together one of the best seasons in the country last year. He averaged 5.9 yards per carry en route to 1,709. Martin, meanwhile, had 1,299 yards last season to go with 16 rushing touchdowns.
