According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cleveland Browns’ busy offseason continues as they are hosting Western Michigan WR Corey Davis for a visit on Tuesday and Wednesday:

Despite drafting WR Corey Coleman with the 15th overall pick last year and signing WR Kenny Britt in free agency, the club lost WR Terrelle Pryor to free agency and no one knows what the status of WR Josh Gordon will be. A wide receiver at No. 12 overall isn’t out of the question, and if they were to land a guy like Davis, it would be with that second first-round pick as he’s not expected to fall very far.

Davis is projected to be a first-round pick and among the top two receivers in this year’s draft class. He is described as a very well-polished and all-around receiver by Dane Bruglar of CBS Sports:

Davis has been one of the most productive college football receivers over the past four seasons, lining up all over the formation in a WMU offense designed to get him the ball. ... He is physically built for the NFL with the route athleticism and polish that dominated MAC competition. Although the drops are frustrating, Davis attacks with his hands and rarely lets the ball into his body. He might not have any dominant qualities, but Davis is above average in several critical areas with the savvy production that matches the tape. ...
