2012 NFL Draft: Top-rated defensive prospect Morris Claiborne announces his arrival in Cleveland

By Nate Ulrich Published: April 5, 2012

Northeast Ohio has become the latest stop on Morris Claiborne’s tour of pre-draft visits.

Claiborne, a standout cornerback from Louisiana State who’s considered the top-rated defensive player in this year’s draft, announced on Twitter that he arrived in Cleveland at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. Claiborne is among 30 national prospects the Browns are hosting before the draft, a league source told the Beacon Journal last week.

The 5-foot-11, 188-pound Claiborne made national headlines Tuesday after Pro Football Talk reported he scored a four on the 50-question Wonderlic test. National Football Post later reported that Claiborne has a learning disability.

Claiborne insists teams have told him they don’t have an issue with his low Wonderlic score, and he remains confident he’ll become a top-10 pick on April 26. The Browns’ top priority is offense, but they could still pull off a surprise and target Claiborne with the fourth overall selection – a scenario we explored in our most recent mock draft.

Claiborne is just one of several big-name prospects meeting with the Browns this week. Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden spent Sunday night and almost all of Monday with the Browns, the Associated Press reported.
