It's time for the second edition of our annual "Tracking the Cleveland Browns Draft Interests" feature.
Listed below, you will find a table that lists the players that the Cleveland Browns have supposedly met with or scouted from either the East/West Shrine Game, Senior Bowl, the NFL Combine, or a Private Workout/Visit. The list is not comprehensive, as I'm sure the team has scouted more players who aren't listed here. These are the ones who have supposedly been confirmed by media sources.
The following players were added to the list since our first edition: QB Ryan Nassib, WR Tavon Austin, TE Gavin Escobar, OG Jonathan Cooper, OG Larry Warford, DE Ezekiel Ansah, CB Logan Ryan, FS D.J. Swearinger, SS Jonathan Cyprien, and K Kevin Harper.
