According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Browns plan on holding a private workout for former West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith.
The Browns, who are seeking competition for Brandon Weeden, will conduct a private workout with Smith, a source said Monday. They sent a representative to Smith’s pro day last week, and Banner said that they’ll study Smith and the other top quarterbacks in depth.
“We want to make sure we’re thorough about every single thing we’re looking at, and as I’ve said, there’s no more important position than quarterback,” Banner said. “I don’t want to look back and feel like we didn’t do our full due diligence on a player that there’s a variety of opinions on, frankly.”
I really believe Smith will be taken in the top-five. That would be bad news for the Browns who have the 6th overall pick in next month’s draft.
