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.

    Go Browns!!!
