According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Cleveland Browns are among the teams showing interest in Central Missouri QB Garrett Fugate:

Dane Brugler of CBS Sports projects Fugate to go undrafted, and is his 22nd ranked quarterback in this year’s draft class. Here is the assessment he offers on Fugate:
A dual-threat quarterback, Fugate has the athleticism to improvise and move his throwing platform, stressing the defense. He tends to rely more on instinct than textbook mechanics with his footwork and release, but delivers with touch and isn’t shy pushing the ball downfield. He goes through streaky stretches with off-target placement due to weight transfer and technical issues. Overall, Fugate, who is currently recovering from late season ACL surgery, is a confident competitor and thrived in the Mules’ shotgun offense, deserving of a NFL chance.
