2014 NFL Draft: Cleveland Browns set up private workout with Derek Carr


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.
