Four Ohio natives are among 14 players the Browns have signed as undrafted free agents.

All 14 will join the Browns' eight-man draft class and a group of tryout players for this weekend's minicamp. They'll be on the practice field Friday afternoon.

The Ohio natives are DB Bryan Williams of Akron Buchtel High School and the University of Akron; TE Mike Massey of Cleveland St. Ignatius and Michigan; DL Adam Hoppel of Lisbon Beaver Local and Cincinnati; and OL Branndon Braxton of Youngstown Ursuline and Oklahoma.

The rest of the class is also heavy on defensive backs and defensive players in general. Other secondary players the Browns have signed include Corey Boudreaux (San Diego State), Antonio Smith (Bowling Green), Jason Venson (Central Florida) and Nathrain Ness (Arizona).

Linebackers in the class include Marcus Benard (Jackson State), Jonathan Foster (Central State) and Phillip Hunt (Houston).

The Browns also signed wide receivers Jordan Norwood (Penn State) and Brent Casteel (Utah) and offensive lineman Marlon Davis (Alabama).

Stay tuned throughout the weekend for full coverage of minicamp.
