According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cleveland Browns have a pre-draft visit lined up at some point with NC State safety Josh Jones:

Jones is projected to be a 2nd round pick by Dane Bruglar of CBS Sports, and is the sixth-ranked safety in this year’s draft class. His played strong safety and free safety in starting roles, and also lined up at cornerback and linebacker at times. Per Bruglar:

While he isn’t the physical marvel that made [Jalen] Ramsey a top-five pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Jones is a big, rangy athlete with the play strength, versatility and developing football intelligence that translate well to the NFL game – possible top-50 pick due to his starter traits and upside.
