The Cleveland Browns were conspicuous by their absence at Johnny Manziel’s pro day on Thursday, meaning that if the team is looking in the direction of drafting a quarterback, they may be looking elsewhere.
According to Cleveland.com, this may be the case as the team has set up their first private workout with a QB in the group, and it’s not Manziel, rather it’s Fresno State’s Derek Carr.
The Browns will conduct their private workout with Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr on Monday, a league source told cleveland.com.
The session will kick off what coach Mike Pettine has described as a “big list” of Browns’ exclusive quarterback auditions.
Throughout the last few weeks, the team has been said to have some interest in the Fresno State product, and there is a possibility that he will be available in the second round for them to grab, should they go in the direction of drafting a wide receiver with their top-10 pick early on.
This still doesn’t mean that they’re completely out of the fold for the other quarterbacks on the board, but the interest in Carr is obviously very high.
