Virginia Tech senior CB Antone Exum hopes to be cleared this Saturday and return for the following week's game against UNC.

Exum will me with Dr. James Andrews on Saturday in the hopes of practicing on Monday. If the senior is declared healthy, he will be a little less than eight months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL and bone fracture in his right knee. Fellow senior Kyle Fuller has really stepped up in Exum's absence, but the duo would present headaches for opposing receivers.

Draft insider Tony Pauline shot down reports that Alabama tackle Cyrus Kouandjio is a first-round target of Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey.

"In fact I was told the team won’t consider him in the first frame due to medical red-flags," Pauline reported. Miami, according to the report, desires Notre Dame's Zack Martin, but doesn't believe he'll be around. "Sources seem to think Hickey will attempt to trade down if the opportunity arises," Pauline wrote. "If they are able to trade down Joel Bitonio, a name that keeps popping up in the late first/early second round area, is a player they like."

NFL Films' Greg Cosell speculated that Northern Illinois S Jimmie Ward could end up as a slot corner in the NFL.

The analyst said on the "Ross Tucker Podcast" that Ward played that spot in sub packages at NIU and was "really, really good" at it. Cosell stressed that he likes Ward as a prospect and said that the Huskies' star has the "best man-to-man cover skills of the safeties in this class." However, he doesn't believe Ward (5-foot-10, 191 pounds) can be a "box player" at that size. Tucker, for the record, disagreed that Ward's size might move him off safety.

Ohio State CB Bradley Roby was arrested on Sunday for operating a vehicle while impaired, reports WBNS in Columbus.

The first-round prospect has a court date set for Friday. "This past weekend my client Bradley Roby was issued a citation in Columbus, Ohio for operating a vehicle while impaired (OVI)," Roby's agent, Michael Perrett, said in a statement. "Bradley was sitting in his parked car in a parking lot when he was approached and questioned by an officer. He was fully cooperative and willingly submitted to field sobriety and breathalyzer tests. His BAC test registered a negligible .008 and after further testing at the police station, he was very quickly released on his own recognizance. There are no other charges, and we are confident that this matter will be resolved quickly and favorably for Bradley. However, as the matter is still pending, we cannot comment further at this time." Roby, one of 30 prospects attending May's draft, was previously arrested in July of 2013 and charged with disorderly conduct.

Florida State's Lamarcus Joyner could be viewed in the "Tyrann Mathieu mold" by drafting teams, NFL Films guru Greg Cosell said on the "Ross Tucker Podcast."

According to the venerable analyst, Joyner could be used as a rookie similarly to how Arizona employed the Honey Badger last season, playing in the slot in sub packages and safety in the base defense. "I would think Lamarcus Joyner will fit that kind of role in the NFL," Cosell said. Joyner (5-foot-8, 184 pounds) played both safety and cornerback for FSU and is talented enough to handle the hybrid duties Cosell suggests.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell said on the "Ross Tucker Podcast" that Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller can handle all responsibilities asked of an NFL corner.

"I think he's a very versatile player," Cosell said. "He can play in the slot as well, Ross, which maybe increases his value. He's not 'just' a slot guy but he can play in the slot." The analyst mentioned that Fuller has "extensive" experience playing nickel corner at Virginia Tech but has the most experience playing the boundary corner. "I think he can play press, I think he can play off, I think he can play man, and I think he can play zone," Cosell said. "He can do a lot of different things depending on what you want to do defensively."

The Patriots hosted Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins for a visit, according to NESN's Doug Kyed.

The visit could be related to medicals, as ASJ was held out of the Combine with a foot fracture, an injury he recently proclaimed as "fully healed." Seferian-Jenkins was used in a variety of different sets in school and uses great body control to win against defenders. He is limited after the catch, however.

FSU LB Telvin Smith visited the Broncos this week, according to Aaron Wilson.

Smith has previously visited the Carolina Panthers and the Philadelphia Eagles, along with privately working out for the Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Some evaluators want to move Smith to safety, which we don't understand. He is under 220 pounds, but Smith is naturally physical and has plenty of speed that blockers will have to worry about.

Kansas State S Ty Zimmerman is visiting the Bengals on Thursday, according to Aaron Wilson.

Zimmerman is a four year starter who is likely being re-checked with medicals after injuring his labrum this year. NFL Network's Charles Davis called Zimmerman one of the draft's biggest sleepers at safety, saying he's "always in the right spot."

Clemson WR Martavis Bryant visited and worked out for the Bucs, according to Aaron Wilson.

"Bryant has a combined total of 22 visits and private workouts, including visits with the Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts, Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers, Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions," according to Wilson, who added the receiver privately worked out for the Rams. Bryant had a high drop rate of 12.5 percent, according to Greg Peshek, but he has plenty of vertical speed.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks would select Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas over Pittsburgh's Tom Savage and SMU's Garrett Gilbert "because he is more talented, athletic and experienced than those players."

The analyst passes on that QB guru George Whitfield, Jr. compared Thomas' talent to former pupils including Cam Newton and Ben Roethlisberger. "He told me the Virginia Tech standout was on par with the Pro Bowlers from a physical standpoint and just needed some seasoning to become a viable option as a quarterback at the next level," Brooks wrote. The 6-foot-6, 250-pound Thomas tested as the class' fastest, highest leaping, longest jumping and strongest-armed QB. "I believe San Francisco, Carolina, Kansas City and Philadelphia would be ideal spots based on their experience developing young, athletic quarterbacks," Brooks wrote. "Although those aforementioned teams aren't in need of a quarterback, the opportunity to bring along an intriguing developmental prospect in a low-pressure environment could pay huge dividends down the road."

South Carolina edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney's agent, Bus Cook, said it was totally his decision to shut down Clowney's private workouts.

Clowney drew heat for terminating any future individual workouts, but the Gamecocks' star is criticized for anything he does that doesn't conform to the idea that he's the next Lawrence Taylor. That's more a function of the way the media works than anything else. Some journalists attempted to tie the workout decision to Clowney's choice to sit out a game against Kentucky with sore ribs, but that was a flimsy argument made more suspect by Cook's assertion that he was behind the workout decision. For the record, it was an astute move. Clowney, the favorite to go No. 1, won't drop below No. 2 under any circumstances; the only way he could have affected his stock one way or the other was to shred a knee like Clemson's Brandon Thomas.
