Mitchell Trubisky will be busy over the next couple of weeks, as he confirmed to reporters at his pro day the growing list of teams who are holding private workouts with him. One of those teams is the Cleveland Browns:

Once again, the Browns did not have head coach Hue Jackson nor executive VP of football operations Sashi Brown at the pro day. That’s not uncommon — it’s the same thing they did with Deshaun Watson, and no other head coaches were there either:
Cabot added that Cleveland was still represented at Trubisky’s pro day, as most, if not all, teams typically are:

Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal had some good notes on Trubisky’s pro day performance, including some quotes from ESPN’s Todd McShay:
"He has the quick release, and the ball comes off his hand just like you see on tape," McShay said during Trubisky's workout. "That's what you want to do. When you come here, you want to be able to see a quarterback throw the ball the same way that he does on tape.
The thing that impressed me probably more than anything with him was how quickly he gets the ball out and how he anticipates throws when studying his tape. Even though there's no defense and he's not trying to get the ball out before a DB makes a break on it, you can see that it's just instinctive for him to get the ball out early before a receiver breaks, and he's able to hit spots."
Also, because Trubisky is local to Cleveland, the Browns can conduct their workout with him in Berea. Other teams would have to travel to Chapel Hill for private workouts with him.
