Editor's note: Tony Grossi covers the Cleveland Browns for ESPN 850 WKNR.
Jared Goff’s pro day Friday in Berkeley, CA, marks one of the pivotal points of the Browns’ pursuit of their next quarterback hopeful.
This week, the Browns also attended the pro days of Cardale Jones at Ohio State, Connor Cook at Michigan State and Kevin Hogan at Stanford. Up ahead are the pro days of North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz (March 24) and Memphis’ Paxton Lynch (April 6).
The Browns were expected to have all their main decision-makers at Goff’s pro day with the exception of Sashi Brown, executive vice president of football operations, whose wife is expected to deliver the couple’s third child any day.
There will be a round of private visits and workouts with all the quarterbacks before this process is completed.
Our fourth mock draft – out of 10 – has no change at the Browns’ pick at No. 2, but has a different player at No. 32 for the fourth mock in a row.
1. Tennessee: OT Laremy Tunsil, Mississippi
Seeds of preferred trade down will be planted at league meetings in Boca Raton, FL, beginning Sunday.
2. Browns: QB Jared Goff, California
Suspension of Colin Kaepernick trade talks puts this back on front burner.
3. San Diego: FS Jalen Ramsey, Florida State
Defection of free agent Eric Weddle makes this pick more realistic.
4. Dallas: DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State
Fits perfectly at left end in Cowboys’ 4-3.
5. Jacksonville: LB Myles Jack, UCLA
This would be another major addition to Jags’ defense.
6. Baltimore: DE DeForest Buckner, Oregon
Best player available supersedes bigger need at cornerback.
7. San Francisco: QB Carson Wentz, North Dakota State
Everyone assumes they prefer Goff, but he’s gone.
8. Philadelphia: RB Ezekiel Elliott, Ohio State
Third straight move up for Zeke.
9. Tampa Bay: CB Vernon Hargreaves, Florida
Addition of Brent Grimes won’t deter this choice.
10. N.Y. Giants: OT Ronnie Stanley, Notre Dame
Highest-ranked player in the trenches.
11. Chicago: DT Sheldon Rankins, Louisville
12. New Orleans: DE Shaq Lawson, Clemson
13. Miami: LB Darron Lee, Ohio State
14. Oakland: DT A’Shawn Robinson, Alabama
15. Los Angeles: QB Paxton Lynch, Memphis
16. Detroit: OT Jake Conklin, Michigan State
17. Atlanta: LB Reggie Ragland, Alabama
18. Indianapolis: OT Taylor Decker, Ohio State
19. Buffalo: WR Laquon Treadwell, Mississippi
20. N.Y. Jets: DE Noah Spence, Eastern Kentucky
21. Washington: CB Mackensie Alexander, Clemson
22. Houston: WR Will Fuller, Notre Dame
23. Minnesota: OG Cody Whitehair, Kansas Sate
24. Cincinnati: WR Corey Coleman, Baylor

28. Kansas City: WR Josh Doctson, Texas Christian
29. Arizona: DE Emmanuel Ogbah, Oklahoma State
30. Carolina: DE Kevin Dodd, Clemson
31. Denver: QB Connor Cook, Michigan State
32. Browns: WR Michael Thomas, Ohio State
First Buckeye drafted by Browns since Brian Robiskie in 2009.
