As the 2012 NFL Draft moves closer to becoming a reality, teams will continue to bring in prospects for evaluation. Teams are allowed to bring in 30 players, which doesn’t include players who grew up within 50 miles of the particular team’s facility, and the visits are to be finished a week before the draft begins, which is April 26.
For the Cleveland Browns, they are bringing in a number of top prospects as they continue to weigh their options with the No. 4 pick. The players the Browns currently plan on bringing into Berea include:
- WR Michael Floyd
- RB Doug Martin
- WR Justin Blackmon
- RB Trent Richardson
- CB Morris Claiborne
- QB Brandon Weeden
- QB Ryan Tannehill
- QB Kirk Cousins
- DE Whitney Mercilus
- RB David Wilson
- DT Michael Brockers
There are many ways in which the Browns could use the fourth-overall pick, but it seems most likely that the team will either use the selection or trade down a few spots in the draft order, thus selecting someone like Michael Floyd or, much to the ire of fans, Ryan Tannehill.
Nevertheless, these pre-draft visits are evidence that the Browns are certainly keeping their options open (as is usually the case) and refusing to tip their hand in any particular direction. Here’s what we do know: the No. 4 pick will remain a mysterious and intriguing scenario all the way up until the first day of the draft.
