Clausen visited the Browns earlier this month and is on their radar with the No. 7 pick. "It's the same terminology and they run the same plays, the same formations,'' said Clausen. "(Offensive coordinator) Brian Daboll knows coach Weis really well, so we were speaking the same language and had a really good rapport.'' He said he also hit it off with Browns coach Eric Mangini, who also knows Weis very well from their New England days. "We spent about 40 minutes together in Cleveland and it went very well,'' said Clausen. Clausen said he knew back when Browns President Mike Holmgren said he "wished he liked (Clausen) more'' that it might just be a smokescreen. Holmgren then confirmed that during his visit to Cleveland. "He said he says thing before the draft that may or may not be true,'' he said. "He told me he said that to throw people off.'' Still, he has no handle on whether or not the Browns will draft him. "They didn't give me any kind of vibe at all,'' he said. He also said he didn't know if Weis, who's now the offensive coordinator for Kansas City, who picks at No. 5, will let him get past the Chiefs.
