The latest reported pre-draft visit is going to add to the confusion of team's wondering what the Cleveland Browns will do in the first round of April's NFL Draft. According to WalterFootball, the Browns are planning to visit Miami offensive tackle Ereck Flowers. The Miami native is expected to be taken in the first round.
The junior is also receiving interest from the Chargers, Buccaneers, Saints, Colts, Panthers and Falcons according to the report. Flowers is unlikely a candidate for the Browns selection at No. 12. He could be at pick No. 19, however.
Offensive tackle is one of the positions that the franchise could conceivably take. Defensive tackle, outside linebacker, quarterback, wide receiver and tight end are also considered positions of need. In the past, reports have stated that Cleveland's primary target to take over the right tackle position is LSU's La'el Collins.
Mitchell Schwartz is the incumbent starter at the position but he has underwhelmed and is entering the final year of his rookie contract. Michael Bowie is also expected to get a long look after returning from an injury.
