Multiple Pro Days figure to have Cleveland Browns' attention

Posted Mar 5, 2014

Pro Days are under way around the country, with college prospects showing their wares to representatives of NFL teams. The Cleveland Browns figure to have interest in several of them.

Browns intend to keep close eye on certain prospects in preparation for the draft.

The Cleveland Browns’ decision-makers are expected to log some serious travel miles in the coming days and weeks as college prospects put themselves on display at Pro Days.

Most are held at their respective college campuses.

However, former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel planned to skip the Aggies’ Wednesday Pro Day and have one of his own on March 27.

Browns coach Mike Pettine already was spotted at one Pro Day, held Tuesday at the University at Buffalo. He and representatives most NFL teams were there to check out linebacker Khalil Mack, who by most accounts had an impressive workout.

Mack was timed on separate handheld stopwatches at 4.53 and 4.55 seconds in the 40-yard dash, a significant improvement over the 4.65 he ran at the NFL Scouting Combine last month. He didn’t run a second 40-yard dash Tuesday because of a tight hamstring.

The following is a list of Pro Days with players who could be of interest to the Browns:

-Thursday, March 6, Clemson (Sammy Watkins, WR)

-Friday, March 7, Ohio State (Carlos Hyde, RB)

-Monday, March 17, Louisville (Teddy Bridgewater, QB)

-Wednesday, March 19, Central Florida (Blake Bortles, QB)

-Thursday, March 20, Fresno State, (Derek Carr, QB)

-Thursday, March 27, QB Johnny Manziel Pro Day at Texas A&M

-Wednesday, April 2, South Carolina (Jadeveon Clowney, DE)
