The Cleveland Browns will travel down to Miami on Saturday to privately work out West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, according to a league source, reports Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer.
Head coach Rob Chudzinski and others will be in attendance as they try to narrow down their choices for the number six pick in the NFL Draft, which starts on April 25th.
All signs point to drafting a QB, but things can change. The team also has worked out USC's Matt Barkley, Florida State's E.J. Manuel and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib. Cabot writes:
'If the Browns don't take a quarterback at No. 6, they might try to land one later in the draft. Browns CEO Joe Banner made it clear in a series of radio interviews last month that the club will continue to acquire and develop quarterbacks until they strike it rich at the position. Smith, a three-year starter at West Virginia, completed 71.2 percent of his attempts last year for 4,205 yards, with 42 touchdowns and only six interceptions. In the past two seasons in the spread offense, he threw 73 TDs against only 13 interceptions.'
