At the end of March, we noted that the Cleveland Browns reportedly had a pre-draft visit lined up with Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, the top offensive tackle prospect in the CFL. On April 22, a report said that the Browns' visit with Duvernay-Tardif was scheduled for some time last week:

Something happened after that, though. In an interview with John Kryk of the Toronto Sun, it was revealed that the Browns and the Colts both had to pass on the opportunity to bring Duvernay-Tardif in for a visit to their facility:

The deadline for NFL teams to meet with prospects was Sunday, so the Browns might have had a scheduling conflict -- for example, they might have preferred to visit with a quarterback instead, and couldn't logistically work out a schedule adjustment. That shouldn't effect the team's interest in the offensive tackle too much, though, if they were sold on him in the first place. We will remove him from the list of team visits in our next draft tracker, though.
