According to Adam Caplan of ESPN Insiders, the Cleveland Browns have scheduled another pre-draft workout with an offensive lineman: Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. This would be one of the team's 30 allotted visits for the 2014 NFL Draft.

Duvernay-Tardif played his college ball at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He is considered the No. 1 prospect eligible for the 2014 CFL Draft, but he'll likely be headed to the NFL instead. According to The Canadian Press, Duvernay-Tardif, a medical student, is projected to be a third- or fourth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. They also say that the numbers he registered at his Pro Day would be impressive by the standards of the NFL Combine:
His results in most categories place him amongst the top performers from last February's NFL scouting combine, a week-long event where the top U.S. college football prospects display their abilities before league coaches, scouts and GMs.
Could the Browns be the type of team looking to use a pick on a Canadian player? The Browns have a total of four draft picks in rounds three and four.
