Tracking the Cleveland Browns 2014 NFL Draft Interests (3rd Edition)

A snapshot of which players the Browns have shown an interest in for this year's draft.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

It's time for the third edition of our annual "Tracking the Cleveland Browns Draft Interests," featuring who the team has reportedly taken a look at leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft. The following players have been added or had an adjustment to their row since the second edition:

QB Teddy Bridgewater, QB Jimmy Garoppolo, QB Tom Savage, QB Keith Wenning, QB Connor Shaw, RB Andre Williams, RB James White, OG Jon Halapio, DT Dominique Easley, CB Pierre Desir, and CB Nevin Lawson.

Listed below, you will find a table that lists the players that the Browns have supposedly met with or scouted from either a visit to Berea, a private workout, or some other way. 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 "other" category includes reported connections at the East/West Shrine Game, Senior Bowl, the NFL Combine, and Pro Days. The "projected round" data comes from
