Browns not bringing Chubb, Barkley or Fitzpatrick in...

for visits. I guess they have enough information on them already if they go with them at #4, or they may be thinking of trading that pick.

Saquon Barkley, Bradley Chubb and Minkah Fitzpatrick not among the Browns 30 draft visits or private workouts.

They didn't bring in any of the three for top 30 draft visits, and have no plans to do so as of now, sources tell cleveland.com. Visits must be completed by next Wednesday, and it's late to ask a player to come in now.

Each team will use their 30 visits differently

Some as posturing, others for character. I've heard teams will even switch it up from year to year.
All guys that they would probably want

to target at #4. Probably just part of the game of draft poker

NC State DE Bradley Chubb told the @RichEisenShow earlier that he doesn't have a visit lined up with the Browns. I'm told Penn State RB Saquon Barkley doesn't either. Reason? I've heard team is comfortable with medicals and character for both.


Barkley

Is a high character kinda guy and the Browns are probably afraid that id he does visit, they would be tempted to take him at #1.

These are the Cleveland Browns after all....
the Giants have drafted players

in top rounds that they did not meet/visit with. Does not affect the process if they are convinced of what they've already seen.

Definitely raises an eyebrow or two but still doesn't tell us much about the team. These teams will do anything to mask their intentions.

In another thread I said things get murky at 4. I said that because I've heard Denzel Ward or a trade are real possibilities there. I'm not saying I've been dialed in to the Browns but I did hear Carlos Hyde was going there a few days before it happened. I even shared that on here.
Guess that indicates they are taking a QB  
TMS : 4/12/2018 11:25 am : link
at #1. Or dies it ?
Sounds like they are taking QB at #1  
ZogZerg : 4/12/2018 12:11 pm : link
and are ready to trade #4
Isn't Hue Jackson on record saying they  
giants#1 : 4/12/2018 12:23 pm : link
were taking a QB #1? The only ones that think they might pass on a QB at #1 are fans.

I'd be surprised if they trade #4 too. They have a ton of picks and would be better off adding top tier talent whether it's Nelson, Chubb, Barkley, Fitz, etc.
These are ‘the Cleveland Browns’ ...  
Spider56 : 4/12/2018 12:26 pm : link
I would not be surprised to see them take a QB at both #1 & #4.
Cleveland will take a QB at 1  
Rjanyg : 4/12/2018 3:12 pm : link
They don't need a Guard, they have Botino and Zeitler. Chubb Barkley or Fitzpatrick will be the pick if they keep it.

I suggested this about a month ago just on a crazy hypothetical. They can get 2 out of the top 4 and have a true QB competition. The loser can be traded. Sounds ridiculous and a waste of draft resources, but they have also cycled through 20+ starting QBs on the search for a franchise QB.
We have to take Barkley here  
TMS : 4/12/2018 5:55 pm : link
or trade down for a a lot of picks or players, a no brainrer. Unless we do not think Barkley is the real deal .
Browns have nothing to hide  
UberAlias : 4/12/2018 8:37 pm : link
NYG will pick whoever they like independent of who the Browns like and if they deal the pick it’s to a team looking QB. Jets will go QB do nothing for Cleveland to hide. If Cleveland didn’t interview these guys it’s probably because they are clean prospects and no need. It’s not always about espionague.
