According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cleveland Browns had a private workout with Florida CB Jalen Tabor on Friday:

Tabor is projected by CBS Sports’ Dane Bruglar to be a second round pick in this year’s draft, and is his ninth-ranked cornerback. Here is a summary he provided on Tabor’s background:

A three-year starter at Florida, Tabor lined up in press-man, off and zone coverages at left and right cornerback for the Gators, posting excellent ball production with 37 passes defended and nine interceptions in Gainesville. Tabor competes with great instincts and the position appears to come naturally to him, playing relaxed, trusting his process and having fun.

His lack of top-end speed, technical refinement and discipline are concerns for the next level, but his confidence and slick ball skills are outstanding. Although his brazen personality will be received differently, Tabor is a good-sized athlete with the natural feel in coverage and competitive swagger to make plays on the ball – on-field talent is first round worthy, but speed and maturity issues will drop him down draft boards, fitting best in a zone-heavy scheme.
