Browns bring Dalvin Cook in for a visit

The Browns have multiple first-round picks, and multiple needs, so they’re checking out multiple options.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Browns are hosting Florida State running back Dalvin Cook for a visit today, among other players (he teases “big-names,” if they’re big enough, we’ll let you know).

Cook was an ultra-productive runner in college, and based on tape alone, he would be a top prospect at his position.

But he left the Scouting Combine with more questions than answers, after some sub-par testing numbers. He ran a 4.49-second 40, which was 0.02 faster than Leonard Fournette despite the fact Cook’s 30 pounds lighter.

Cook also posted a 30.5 vertical leap, raising some questions about his overall athleticism. There are also some off-field and fumbling concerns with Cook.

But he did run for 3,456 yards and 38 touchdowns for the Seminoles and has pass-catching ability, so scouts are going to have to make a call on how to weigh the testing numbers against his production.

    If nothing else this is good PR to make us Browns fans think they know what they are doing….then they’ll trade down from #12 and draft a bunch of busts again instead of one impact player.

    Unconfirmed reports saw Cook paddling a boat as fast as he could to Canada to get away from the Browns.

    I’d fake an injury if I was him.

    Browns aren’t drafting a RB in the first round. That’s one position that doesn’t need a starter.
