247 Sports Article: Cleveland Browns Top30 Draft Visits Tracker

Recommended Posts

List includes some interesting names including a few lesser known ones that BBMD GMs have tapped for their teams. For example...

  •  Virginia DB Juan Thornhill (Picked in Round 2 to play SS play SS for your Browns by their hard-working GM)

Thornhill has also taken a visit with the Dallas Cowboys. The Virginia native had 206 tackles, 19 pass deflections, 1.5 sacks, one forced fumble and 13 interceptions during his three seasons as a starter. In 2018, he had 98 tackles, seven pass deflections and six interceptions.

NFL.com compares Thornhill to Chicago Bears safety HaHa Clinton-Dix.

"Three-year starter who proved he could bring his instincts and ball skills with him from cornerback to safety in 2018. Thornhill's size and cover talent should allow defensive coordinators the freedom to deploy him around the field in a variety of ways depending on the matchups and his running mate at safety. While he could garner consideration as a corner, safety gives him his best opportunity to become an early starter," NFL.com's Lance Zierlein wrote.

The safety is projected as a second round pick.

  • Ohio OT Joe Lowery (Stolen by HOU's brilliant, young, good-looking GM in round 5)

Lowery was named the Pro Football Focus MAC Player of the Year in 2018. He has already met with the Arizona Cardinals and the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was named Second Team All MAC in 2017 and was named a captain prior to the season. He was named First Team All MAC in 2018.

Defensive line coach Jesse Williams had high praise for the lineman.

"Joe is one of the most impressive left tackles that you can find with his size and movement ability. His ability to block all three levels allows him to be a big time prospect. He had offers from several other schools. He's got big time ability and he's a great finisher," Williams said via OhioBobcats.com.

A lot of CBs/DBs in that list. Gives us an idea of the thinking going on. Couple or three possible 2nd round DTs as well. Others look like later round picks.

Heres Dorsey's visit list from roughly same time last season.. https://www.dawgsbynature.com/2018/4/21/17266424/tracking-the-cleveland-browns-2018-nfl-draft-interests  Here's Walters as of 4-12-19 https://walterfootball.com/prospectMeetings/byteam (maybe some locals from yesterday missing) It maybe coming into focus that A) They talk to a lot of borderline guys that may fall to 8th round. 2) They attack a position with 2-3 different round target levels, maybe getting more clarity at Berra with visit. 3) Highsmith & Wolfe scout all rounds of personal, but mid to late rounds seem to be there thing.If they get to Dorseys office? maybe that kids, got a shot?       Any other trends?

Thornhill WAS the guy that I said that the Browns would take when it was asked who they would draft at #49.

Trysten Hill was in for a pre-draft visit/workout. 

Another one of those "Dorsey" kids with some off field (and, I guess, on field) issues.       Insane first step at the snap though, I give him that.
