Browns Cancel Visit with Dez Bryant

One of the nuggets from Peter King's MMQB column today that can be underlined in your head is the Cleveland Browns' decision to cancel a scheduled pre-draft visit with Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant.

"He's no longer on our list. He's not visiting us", a Browns source told King.

It's possible that with Joshua Cribbs, Mohamed Massaquoi, Brian Robiskie, and Chansi Stuckey, the Browns like the core of their wide receivers group, and aren't interested in using the seventh, or any pick in the first-round, on a wide receiver, and don't necessarily need to take a closer look at Bryant.

King later writes that Browns head coach Eric Mangini has the locker room the way he wants it, and that "the Browns would rather take guys without question marks on their resumes".

Considering Mike Holmgren's experience in Seattle with talented, but troubled first-round picks Koren Robinson and Jerramy Stevens, it'd be easy to say that Holmgren has learned his lesson about using high draft picks on those guys. I'm not sure that will ever be the case, but it wouldn't surprise me if Holmgren avoided players with character red-flags with his first draft pick in Cleveland.
