Browns NFL Draft rumors: Dee Milliner, Tyrann Mathieu, Jonathan Cyprien visit Cleveland

Kevin C. Cox

The Browns are reportedly going to host a trio of the NFL Draft's most intriguing secondary prospects.

Alabama Crimson Tide cornerback Dee Milliner is paying a visit to the Cleveland Browns, according to a report from Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal on Wednesday, adding to a list of a couple other members of the 2013 NFL Draft's secondary class already reportedly visiting Cleveland: former LSU Tiger Tyrann Mathieu and Florida International's Jonathan Cyprien.

The pre-draft visit, of which each NFL team can only host a maximum of 30 prior to April's draft, is reported by Ulrich to be set for the second week in April. Milliner is the top-rated cornerback prospect in SB Nation's positional draft rankings.

Milliner joins Mathieu, who, it was reported by Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer Wednesday, will also be visiting the Browns at some point before the draft, and Cyprien, one of the top safety prospects reportedly expected to do the same.

In 2012, Cleveland surrendered an average of 245.2 passing yards per game, good for 25th overall in the league. While these players all bring different talent packages to the table, a sign the Browns may not be honing in on a specific type of player to plug into their secondary, they are all undoubtedly intriguing. If anything, Cleveland is keeping its options, and opinions, open to the influence of what they may see during these visits.
