The Browns scouts are now down in Mobile, and our spies are following them everywhere they go. Switching coats and hats, pretending that their brown-and-orange gear is from Bowling Green, nothing works to throw our spies off the tracks.
At the end of Day 1, here are the players the Browns are tracking:
- The team made a special note of attending the North practice today, and a
Browns representative was overheard to say that they were interested in
observing the North quarterbacks (Charlie Frye, Kyle Orton, and Dan Orlovsky).
They saw a very good session by Charlie Frye that couldn't have helped but to
anything to keep their interest in the local product.
- A Browns representative was also heard to say that they wanted to check
out Wisconsin's defensive tackle Antaaj Hawthorne.
- The Browns were "all over" Oregon offensive tackle Adam Snyder, according
to our spies. Keep him on your checklist as you are reviewing players
available in this year's draft.
- Team representatives "made a bee-line" for south squad fullbacks Nehemiah Broughton (The Citadel) and Will Matthews (Texas) after practice. There were
also seen talking to a tight end.
- Scouts were also seen talking to the kickers on the South squad, namely, Jonathon Nichols of Ole Miss and Dustin Colquitt of Tennessee. Ohio State kicker Mike Nugent is playing for the North squad, but we haven't seen the Browns visit with him yet.
Assuming that stealth technology has not been woven into their coats, we will keep you up-to-date on the team's coaches and scouts as the week goes on!
