Browns check out Johnny Manziel

Johnny Manziel worked out for Cleveland Browns officials Saturday in College Station, Texas, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Manziel, who has been widely projected as a high first-round pick in next month's NFL draft, also will visit with the Browns this coming week, according to the source.

The Browns did not attend Johnny Manziel's pro day at Texas A&M but conducted a private workout with the former Heisman Trophy winner.

Although they did not attend his pro day at Texas A&M, the Browns recently have been linked with Manziel, the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback who has emerged as one of the most polarizing prospects in this year's draft class.

Manziel recently was tabbed as the No. 4 overall pick to the Browns in ESPN NFL draft expert Mel Kiper's latest mock draft. Veteran Brian Hoyer, who is attempting to bounce back from a serious knee injury, is the only quarterback currently on Cleveland's roster.

Manziel also reportedly scored a 32 on the Wonderlic test at February's NFL scouting combine, potentially boosting his draft stock. The Wonderlic is a 50-question test administered to all combine participants that measures cognitive ability. A score of 20 is indicative of "average" intelligence and roughly equivalent to an IQ of 100.

Several teams have met with the former Texas A&M star, including the Houston Texans, who own the first overall pick, and the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are picking third.

The Browns went 4-12 last season and are rebuilding their roster under new general manager Ray Farmer and first-year coach Mike Pettine.
