According to Dan Hope of The USA Today, the Cleveland Browns held a private workout with Clemson tight end Jordan Leggett.
Leggett is the 8th-ranked tight end by CBS Sports and is projected to be a 4th round draft pick. We’re getting close to a handful of tight ends who the Browns have already shown some interest in, so it seems as though they’ve identified it as a position of need.
Scouting reports say that Leggett has had some work ethic issues in his career, and his blocking is suspect after having converted from being a wide receiver. Here is what CBS Sports said about him:
Leggett is one of the more athletically gifted tight end prospects. He will be a real find for someone and be a nice addition to most passing games. Leggett can get open, catch the football and make plays and be a wonderful weapon. However, he has to prove two things to scouts. First, that's he's truly committed to the game and will work hard. Second, Leggett must continue to work on blocking. If he does those two things, he can become a very good NFL player.
