Midwestern State offensive tackle Amini Silatolu conducted a private workout for the Browns, a league source confirmed tonight for the Beacon Journal.
Silatolu has not visited the team.
NFLDraftScout.com projects the 6-foot-4, 311-pound Silatolu as a second-round pick. He played left tackle for Division II Midwestern State, though NFLDraftScout.com and Pro Football Weekly project him as an NFL guard.
The Browns are in the market for a starting right tackle. If they believe Silatolu could fill that role, it would make sense for them to target him early in the second round (No. 37 overall).
Silatolu was a starting offensive lineman for San Joaquin Delta College from 2007-08. He then signed with Nevada, but he didn’t qualify academically and missed the 2009 season. At Midwestern State, he started nine games at left tackle in 2010 and 10 games in the same spot last season.
