Add Cleveland to the list of temas interested in West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith.
Smith and the Browns have a private workout planned, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
It’s widely believed that the new regime in Cleveland isn’t thrilled with the quarterbacks they inherited, Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy. And since the Browns haven’t added a quarterback via a trade or free agency, it could make sense for them to draft one. And the only one who’s viewed as worthy of a pick as high as No. 6 overall is Smith.
But at this point there’s so much talk about interest in Smith among the teams with the highest picks that it’s looking less likely that Smith will even be available at No. 6. We’ve already identified the Jaguars (No. 2 overall), Raiders (No. 3 overall) and Eagles (No. 4 overall) as teams that are taking a look at Smith.
If there’s a team out there that really loves Smith, it might be time to pick up the phone and call the Chiefs.
