Browns Eye ACC Running Back

Lane Adkins says the orange and brown are looking for some help for Reuben Droughns...

Phil Savage, the General Manager of the Cleveland Browns has been scouting running back prospects throughout the 2005 college season, which has continued at the college player scouting combine in Indianapolis.

Looking for a running back to take some of the burden off Reuben Droughns, the Browns are uncertain that Lee Suggs (injury issues) and William Green are the answer. In the case of Green, he could be displaced with the acquisition of another running back.

Wali Lundy from Virginia is just one of many running backs which has caught the attention of the Browns' braintrust. Lundy sports good size (5-11 ½ - 214-lbs) and is believed to have the physical attributes to potentially become an every down back (was a receiver in high-school) at the professional level.

Approximately 15 teams have talked with Lundy at the Indianapolis Combine, with the Browns being one of them.

Lundy is tough and durable. A good inside runner who has displayed the type of style which would fit the Cleveland offensive scheme, Lundy is one player to keep an eye on as the off-season progresses and the Browns look to solidify the offensive backfield.
