Browns to Meet With DT Nick Fairley, OT Jah Reid, and CB Curtis Brown

New, comments

According to the News Herald, the Cleveland Browns have a visit with defensive tackle Nick Fairley scheduled soon. I don't see the Browns taking Fairley with the No. 6 overall pick, but he still has to be considered a candidate given his position. It's hard to want Fairley when he receives assessments like this from Todd McShay:

"When I watch Fairley on tape, he flashes more than any other interior defensive lineman in the country," McShay said. "But he also takes off as many plays as any defensive lineman considered in the first two rounds. I watched every game he played this last season. There were always plays taken off."

The News Herald also notes that the Browns will be having Texas cornerback Curtis Brown, a projected second- or third-round pick, in for a visit.

Lastly, according to Pro Football Weekly, Central Florida offensive tackle Jah Reid will have a private workout with Cleveland. At 6-7 and 327 pounds, Reid is expected to be a late round pick or go undrafted. Perhaps the Browns will use their new compensatory pick on a guy like Reid if they like what they see and he is still available.
