Here’s a look at the latest out of Cleveland..
- The Browns’ chances of getting the best quarterback in the draft are nil if they don’t trade up, so Jeff Schudel of The Morning Journal wonders if they just might decide to go for a running back instead. The Browns pick at No. 19 and Todd Gurley could conceivably be available there. On the other hand, running back is not an area of desperate need for the Browns because they have Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West. Interestingly, it was Gurley that replaced Crowell at Georgia when Crowell was kicked off the team for disciplinary reasons.
- Terry Pluto of The Plain Dealer took a look at quarterback prospects that could be a fit for the Browns. Beyond presumptive No. 1 pick Jameis Winston, he feels that the best candidate is Colorado State’s Garrett Grayson. Most scouts have projected him as a backup, but ESPN’s Jon Gruden has him pegged as the No. 3 quarterback in the draft, behind Winston and Marcus Mariota.
- Ex-Morgan State running back Jourdan Brooks has been invited to the Browns‘ minicamp on tryout basis, according to a source that spoke with Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun (on Twitter). Brooks, who stands at 6’0″ and 237 pounds, was originally signed by Cincinnati as an undrafted free agent.
