Source: Fresno State QB Derek Carr to visit Browns next week
Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr left his private workout with the Browns last month, saying that “everything went great.” The feeling is mutual as Cleveland brass will use one of its coveted top-30 visits on the quarterback.
The Browns have scheduled Carr for a visit next week, a source told FOXSports.com.
The 6-foot-2, 214-pound quarterback is also scheduled to meet with the Bucs this Wednesday, despite having Josh McCown and Mike Glennon on the roster.
"I think he’s the best natural thrower as far as arm strength in the draft,” Browns head coach Mike Pettine said at the NFL Annual Meeting last month. "(He’s) very physically-gifted. And a lot of times it’s hard to bet against the family history as well. You’re talking about like a Jake Matthews (where) it’s the old ‘don’t bet against the genetics.’ I think he certainly falls into that category as well.”
Carr’s immense production (5,085 yards, 50 TDs) during his senior season, leading Fresno State to an 11-win season, has him among the elite quarterback in this year’s draft class.
The Browns own the No. 4, No. 26 and No. 35 picks and certainly have a priority in selecting a quarterback.
