BEREA – The Browns drafted a pair of receivers in the second round Saturday, but aren’t finished trying to improve the position.

According to a league source, veteran Drew Bennett will visit Browns headquarters today and work out.

Bennett (6-foot-5, 196 pounds) will be 31 when the season starts. He’s been in the league eight years and has started 58 games. He broke his foot last year and played only one game with the Rams, catching one pass for 4 yards.

Bennett’s best season was in 2004 with Tennessee, when he caught 80 passes for 1,247 yards and 11 touch-downs.

Ohio State’s Brian Robiskie and Georgia’s Mohamed Massaquoi were drafted 36th and 50th.

 Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell will participate in the Browns rookie minicamp this weekend. He doesn’t have a contract, but could earn one with a successful camp.

Harrell (6-2, 223) built quite a resume with the Red Raiders, but lacks the ideal size, athleticism and arm strength for the NFL.

He finished fourth in vot-ing for the Heisman Trophy in 2008 and is the only player in NCAA history to throw for more than 5,000 yards twice. His 134 touch-down passes are a major college record, and the 15,793 passing yards rank second.

He was a finalist for the Draddy Trophy, given to the nation’s top scholar-athlete.
