Why so many visits for CB Antonio Cromartie? Because teams around the NFL want to see if the high-upside cornerback is truly healthy.

Cromartie quickly moved into Florida State's line-up as a freshman, and was named an All-Conference selection his sophomore year as he finished with 22 tackles and six interceptions. He was expected to be one of the top - if not the highest-rated- - cornerbacks available in this year's draft. The junior defensive back, however, injured his knee during pre-season and did not play all year.

He is now acquiring a lot of frequent flyer miles because teams want to see if he's fully recovered. According to NFL sources who have spoken to TheOBR.com, Cromartie has been coming through these NFL physicals with flying colors.

Based on what we've been hearing, it looks like Cromartie has a solid chance to get into the first round. If he slips to the Browns in Round 2, however, he would be awfully tough to pass by. Chances are, Phil Savage won't have to make that decision.
