With 17 days left until the Cleveland Browns make their way to Radio City Music Hall to add to their current stable of athletes, general manager Tom Heckert and company will visit with many of the top prospects who will hear their respective names called early into the evening.
Per Mary Kay Cabot, this week will feature many of the NCAA’s top players making a pit stop in Berea to be interviewed and examined by Heckert, team president Mike Holmgren and the newly-acquired head coach Pat Shurmur.
Cabot lists wide receivers A.J. Green and Julio Jones, both having been linked to the Browns in many mock drafts, as well as cornerback Patrick Peterson – this author’s ideal selection – and pass-rusher extraordinaire Von Miller. With Auburn’s Cameron Newton and Alabama’s Marcel Dareus being pegged at numbers one and two, respectively, the subsequent selections between Denver and Cleveland remain a mystery to most.
Unfortunately, the players are not allowed to participate in a work-out during their respective visits.
Heckert has stated multiple times that he feels the team’s options are aplenty given the current holes and caliber of players that will be available when the Browns make their selection. The 2010 NFL Draft provided the Orange and Brown with several starters, an endeavor which the team hopes to replicate one year later.
