Besides the running backs we talked about earlier, the Cleveland Browns also had Florida DB Quincy Wilson in town for a visit on Monday:

Some people have Wilson designated as a cornerback (where he played in college), while others have him as a safety (where they think he might be better suited in the NFL). Dane Bruglar of CBS Sports lists him as a safety and projected to be a 2nd or 3rd round pick. Bruglar has Wilson and fellow safety Marcus Maye with practically the same grade, and Cleveland has now shown interest in both of them. From Bruglar:

He is a big athlete with several of the physical ingredients at the position that has NFL scouts optimistic, but he is more smooth than sudden and struggles to stick with wideouts at the top of routes, especially if he doesn’t disrupt the route at the line of scrimmage. Although he has the ball skills and awareness to make impact plays in coverage, Wilson often takes too many chances, leading to mistakes and receivers gaining easy separation. He also has the size and toughness to be a reliable run defender, but his streaky tackling mechanics allowed offenses to run at him with success. While there is plenty to like about him as a cornerback prospect, Wilson has the skill-set that might be better suited at safety.
