According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, the Cleveland Browns will hold a private workout with Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr this Monday.

At the annual league meetings this past week, head coach Mike Pettine said that the team was logistically figuring out the details of workout out several quarterbacks, and it's presumed that Carr is the first one. Here was Pettine's assesment of Carr when asked about him at the meetings:

"I think he's the best natural thrower as far as arm strength and when you're just looking at the guy, natural thrower, in the draft. Very physically-gifted. And a lot of times it's hard to bet against the family history as well. You're talking about like a Jake Matthews that it's the old 'don't bet against the genetics.' I think he certainly falls into that category as well."

Back in February, DBN's Josh Finney gave a detailed evaluation of Carr and whether or not he would be a good prospect for the Browns to consider at No. 4 overall or No. 26 overall.
