INDIANAPOLIS -- Apparently the Browns analytical approach to putting together their roster includes bringing playing cards into the NFL Combine interview room.
Indiana guard Dan Feeney was expecting the normal protocol. Exchange a few pleasantries, talk about your season, diagram some plays or watch some tape, move on to the next interview.
Not with the Browns.
Feeney's combine meeting with Cleveland went a little differently. 
"You expect to go in there and talk about your offense, or learn their offense, and here's a guy with a deck of cards and you're like, 'Hey man are we playing blackjack or something?' It's definitely something different," Feeney said Thursday.
No blackjack. Just the time-honored tradition of memory-based card games during your NFL job interview.
Hey, give the Browns some credit for thinking outside of the box.
Feeney said the card game involved a simple method a memorizing cards, flipping them over, then remembering which cards were which after shuffling them around. If you can succeed at Three-card Monte, you can succeed in the NFL. Apparently.
"I messed up on a couple," Feeney said. "But it was cool. It was something different."
At least it broke up what has to a monotonous couple days of testing, medical exams and interviews. Testing a players mental acuity is an important part of the pre-draft process, so maybe the Browns actually learned something about Feeney.
Bleacher report draft analyst Matt Miller has Feeney as his No. 38 overall prospect, the No. 1 guard and labeled him as the most NFL-ready at that position.
