Baylor offensive tackle Jason Smith, Texas pass rusher Brian Orakpo and USC inside linebacker Rey Maualuga are among a handful of big names eligible for the upcoming draft who will visit the Browns next week, league sources told The Plain Dealer.

Three others are Georgia running back Knowshon Moreno, Missouri receiver Jeremy Maclin and USC linebacker Clay Matthews III. The Browns also will travel to Ohio State to work out cornerback Malcolm Jenkins, who some NFL teams view as a safety.

The Browns sent offensive line coach George Warhop to Baylor to work out Smith, who would start at right tackle for the Browns. Warhop was apparently impressed enough to invite Smith back to Cleveland for a pre-draft visit. Believed by some to be the best tackle in the draft, Smith (6-4?, 309) could go as high as No. 2 to St. Louis.

Smith and Orakpo are two of about six players the Browns are considering with the No. 5 pick in the April 25 draft. Orakpo is the player many experts predict the Browns will select to improve their anemic pass rush, one that finished tied for 30th in the NFL last season with 17 sacks. The Browns already have invested a lot of time in him, both at the NFL Combine and during a private workout at Texas on March 18.

Maclin, Moreno and Jenkins are players the Browns might consider if they trade down in the round. Some have Maclin going to the Raiders at No. 7 while Moreno, Jenkins and Matthews are mid-round projections. As of Wednesday night, USC quarterback Mark Sanchez was not scheduled for a visit.
