Cleveland Browns:

  • Browns do not need a first-round tackle ( - College football’s best offensive linemen paraded through the NFL Combine on Thursday, big bodies, long arms, quick feet and sharp minds. If they were among the best of the best, like Alabama’s Jonah Williams, Florida’s Jawaan Taylor or Greg Little of Ole Miss, then the Browns don’t need them. At least not at No. 17 in the first round, which is where the Browns may have to take any of those three to get them.
  • Parris Campbell reflects on debt he owes his mother ( - As Parris Campbell toes the line for the most important 40-yard dash of his life Saturday, he will run for his 9-month-old son, Kai. He will run for his mother, Shelly Woodruff, who has worked 25 years as an outreach coordinator for the Summit County Prosecutor’s office.
  • DK Metcalf would bring size, hands, NFL genes and familiar name to Browns (Browns Zone - The Browns could use size at receiver. Mississippi’s DK Metcalf has plenty. At 6-foot-3 3/8, a chiseled 228 pounds and 1.9 percent body fat, Metcalf is built like a house, according to Raiders coach Jon Gruden.
  • Joe Thomas has a fan in Jonah Williams (ESPN) - Jonah Williams, the No. 1-rated offensive tackle from Alabama, never met retired Browns legend Joe Thomas -- until Friday -- but considers him one of his idols. Williams is a student of his position and said he has been studying tapes of Thomas to make himself a better left tackle. His eyes brightened when he confirmed he met with the Browns in a 15-minute interview.
