On the Browns' Radar...

Every year, the Browns descend on the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combines to evaluate the top players available in the draft. And this year, even more so than in the past, we're there to evaluate who the team is evaluating. Or something like that. Here are the players the team was watching closely during Day 1 in Mobile...

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!
