Browns coach Eric Mangini met with media Saturday after the final practice of the team's mandatory minicamp in Berea. Here are some of the highlights:
- Overall, Mangini said he liked the progress he saw from several new players.
- The Browns have rotated a few players on the right side of their offensive line. Mangini said they'll continue to do that later this summer in training camp. In the mix on the right side: Tony Pashos and John St. Clair (tackles for the most part), Floyd Womack and Shawn Lauvao (guards for the most part).
- Mangini said he likes what he's seen from his receivers. Joshua Cribbs has become a better receiver, Mangini said. He added Brian Robiskie and Mohamed Massaquoi performed well during minicamp.
- Mangini likes what he's seen from quarterback Jake Delhomme, who's the projected starter. "There's no doubt who's in control," Mangini said. "There's no doubt what we're doing."
- Mangini said several players, including rookie running back Montario Hardesty and cornerback Eric Wright, were limited for precautionary reasons. "We don't want to press it too hard," he said.
- Linebacker Scott Fujita had a cut on his right hand and sat out as a result, Mangini said.
- Mangini on rookie cornerback Joe Haden: "I really like the way that he's approached things. I think the volume of information has been new. ... He's done a good job. He's been put in a lot of spots where he's had to adjust."
- What young guys have jumped out to Mangini? receivers Carlton Mitchel and Johnathan Haggerty, plus safety Larry Asante and offensive lineman Shawn Lauvao.
