The Browns hold the fourth overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft and have been lining up visits with potential prospects.

The Cleveland Browns are a wild card in the 2012 NFL draft holding the fourth overall pick. We don't really have a clear idea of what they'll be doing with that pick, unlike the first three picks which are pretty easy to figure out. The Browns are bringing in a number of players for pre-draft visits, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

Those pre-draft visits include Justin Blackmon, Trent Richardson, Ryan Tannehill and Morris Claiborne, all of whom are under consideration for the fourth overall pick.

Others coming in for visits include quarterbacks Branden Weeden and Kirk Cousins, as well as Whitney Mercilus and David Wilson. Those players are likely under consideration for the Browns second first-round pick, or their second-round pick.

The Browns probably need to focus on offense with the fourth overall pick. Tannehill is an option with Colt McCoy's future in Cleveland still a mixed bag. Richardson would immediately upgrade their offense, as would Blackmon.
