Cleveland Browns - Set To Workout Star QB; Sign Veteran WR

NFL Draft News

With the 2013 NFL Draft just weeks away, the Cleveland Browns are continuing to make moves. According to a report from Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns are set to workout former West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith on Saturday in a private session. New head coach Rob Chudzinski will be in attendance, as well as a few others. The report also said that if the Browns pass on a QB with the 6th pick, look for them to be interested in one later in the draft.

Smith was a 3-year starter for West Virginia. Last season, he completed 71.2 percent of his passes, while throwing for 4,205 yards and 42 touchdowns with only six interceptions. Smith is capable of running the traditional, spread and read-option offenses.

Adding Depth at WR

With the recent signing of Mohamed Massaquoi to the Jaguars, the Browns have addressed the need at wide receiver, signing ex-Buffalo Bill David Nelson to a one-year deal. The wideout is coming off of a torn ACL in 2012, which cost him the entire season. He did have a solid season the previous year, catching 61 balls for over 600 yards. Nelson has very good size at 6-5, 214, and should provide a big target in the slot for Brandon Weeden, or whoever is under center this coming season.
