As the Browns prepare for the upcoming NFL draft, they’re taking a look at what quarterback options might be out there.
On Saturday, they’ll be conducting a private workout with West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, and Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel will be in Cleveland Sunday night and Monday to meet with the team.
Smith is currently the hot name of this draft, as no one can really pinpoint where he might be selected. Some think a quarterback-needy team might swoop in on him within the first ten picks, but others believe he is a fringe first rounder at best.
The Browns have been targeted as a potential destination for Smith, given that they own the sixth overall pick, but it’s highly doubtful the team spends it on him.
Manuel might be a more realistic option for the Browns, as his name continues to fly under the radar. Once the draft experts latch on to somebody, everyone else falls by the wayside, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less talented – or more affordable.
