After a week of star-studded draft visits, the Browns will travel to Miami on Saturday to conduct a private workout with West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith in his hometown, a league source told The Plain Dealer.

The session, which will be attended by coach Rob Chudzinski and others, continues the Browns' thorough investigation of all of the top quarterback prospects in the draft in the event they decide to spend their No. 6 overall pick on one. In addition to Smith, they hosted USC quarterback Matt Barkley on Tuesday, and have conducted private workouts with Florida State's E.J. Manuel and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib. They'll also host Arizona dual-threat quarterback Matt Scott this week.

If the Browns don't take a quarterback at No. 6, they might try to land one later in the draft. Browns CEO Joe Banner made it clear in a series of radio interviews last month that the club will continue to acquire and develop quarterbacks until they strike it rich at the position.

Smith, a three-year starter at West Virginia, completed 71.2 percent of his attempts last year for 4,205 yards, with 42 touchdowns and only six interceptions. In the past two seasons in the spread offense, he threw 73 TDs against only 13 interceptions.

His former quarterbacks coach Jake Spavital, now with Texas A&M, told The Plain Dealer recently that Smith is definitely worth the No. 1 overall pick, in large part because of his versatility. He said Smith can run a traditional offense, a spread or a read-option. He raved about his work ethic and described him as a film junkie.

ESPN's Jon Gruden, who interviewed Smith for his "QB Camp" series, touted him worthy of the top overall selection.

"In this class, I definitely think he's a guy you could take at No. 1, or at least in that range if it's your top need," Gruden said on ESPN. "Sure, a lot of people say he's not as good as Andrew Luck or Griffin. Well, last time I checked, those guys aren't in this draft. It's supply and demand. In this league, you need a quarterback, and if you're a general manager or a coach, you can't just operate with the idea you're content to wait until you're in the perfect position to take a can't-miss prospect. In this class, the closest thing to that is Smith. And if I needed a quarterback, I'd be willing to take him high."

Gruden pointed out that Smith completed 70.8 percent of his attempts last season when facing extra pressure, with a 12-1 TD/INT ratio.

Question is, will be Smith still be around at No. 6? And will the Browns take him if he falls to them there.
