Up to this point, Cleveland Browns CEO Joe Banner has been the front office man who has been discussing personnel-related topics. In fact, I don't think Michael Lombardi has spoken to the media since his introductory press conference, and maybe that is a good thing. After all, fans and the media haven't been too complimentary of his track record.

That will change Thursday, according to reports, as Lombardi will be available for the team's pre-draft presser:
#Browns GM Mike Lombardi will talk afterall. He's set to join CEO Joe Banner for a pre-draft presser on Thursday. He'd been low profile.— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) April 16, 2013
As soon as a specific time is available for Thursday, we'll let everyone know, as I'm sure the press conference will be streamed live on the official team site.
