With the NFL Draft less than three weeks away, the Cleveland Browns are slated to play host to several top-tier players over the coming weeks. While Monday will be largely focused on the Indians and their Opening Day festivities, the Nate Ulrich of The Akron Beacon-Journal reports that the Browns will be hosting BYU defensive end Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah, Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd and Oregon offensive lineman Kyle Long. Southern California’s Matt Barkley tweeted early Monday that he will be paying visit to Cleveland before he heads to Buffalo later in the week. Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Alabama defensive back Dee Milliner will arrive in Cleveland late Monday night for a workout on Tuesday. ESPN’s Mel Kiper presently lists Ansah as the second-player to be taken in the draft, closely followed by Floyd (third), Milliner (fifth), Long (30th) and Barkley (31st). Scouts Inc.’s Todd McShay has the Browns selecting Ansah with the sixth-overall selection. The Browns, owners of the sixth pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, are said to be looking largely at Milliner or a variety of pass-rushing outside linebackers with their first pick. Not owning a pick in the second round due to the selection of Josh Gordon in last year’s supplemental draft, it is widely speculated that the team would entertain trading down to acquire additional picks if it meant still acquiring a potential target later in the first round.
