Virginia Tech senior QB Logan Thomas exited Tuesday's bowl game against UCLA with a head injury.

Thomas rolled out to his left and took a major shot to the head after releasing a pass. He was evaluated at halftime but was held out for the final two quarters. Do not expect to hear any more details about the injuries since his playing career at Virginia tech is over. He will have a chance to display his talent in Mobile at the Senior Bowl.

Fresno State QB Derek Carr is visiting the Bucs on Wednesday, according to beat writer Jenna Laine.

The Bucs signed Josh McCown to be the starter in 2014, but the new decision makers have shown zero attachment to Mike Glennon. Carr is an unlikely option at No. 7, but a team could trade back into the first-round to lock up that fifth year contract option.

Alabama QB AJ McCarron is conducting a private workout for the Browns on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

McCarron is nothing more than a third-round pick, no matter how much you value his game. The Alabama quarterback is a limited passer, but teams might conclude he could help a team win if supported by a strong running game and tough defense. Teams will try to mimic the Seahawks' approach, but they'll need plenty of luck if McCarron is the choice at quarterback.

Fresno State QB Derek Carr confidently called himself the draft's best QB, and told the "NFL AM" on the NFL Network that the tape backs up the claim.

On the show, Carr said he was "absolutely" the best quarterback in the draft, and added: "We can turn the tape on and watch it." Certainly nobody can match the statistics accumulated on that celluloid, as Carr threw for a ridiculous 5,083 yards and 50 TDs in 2013. He also dropped an interesting tidbit when asked about the three QB prospects supposedly above him in the pecking order -- UCF's Blake Bortles, Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater and Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel -- claiming he's heard that he'll go above at least one of them. "From what I've heard ... it'll work out that way," Carr said.

Colorado State C Weston Richburg has been put through "many private workouts" by the Patriots, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Reiss believes Richburg's brains ("He made the line calls and has good football intelligence"), versatility (he played C, G and T in college), fit ("He appears to fit best in a zone-blocking scheme, which is what the Patriots primarily utilize") and leadership (two-time captain) will appeal to New England. Ryan Wendell got a two-year deal in March, so it's not clear if the Pats would invest the Day 2 pick that would be required to secure Richburg.

Cleveland will conduct a private workout with Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel in College Station this weekend, reports NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

Brandt also passes along that Manziel will visit the Browns for his official pre-draft visit next week. Cleveland owns the No. 4 pick, and there seems to be a better than 50-50 chance that Manziel will be available at that slot. Of course, Cleveland also owns the Colts' first-round pick and might choose to wait to see if either Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater or Fresno State's Derek Carr fall to them. They could also simply ignore the position until Day 2. The QB situation in this year's draft is incredibly fluid, and the Browns figure to be major players in the drama next month.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote that "disruptive talents" such as Boise State edge player Demarcus Lawrence "usually don't make it out of the top-32 picks."

More and more evaluators are getting behind the idea of Lawrence as a Day 1 pick, and Brugler's reasoning explains why. Though he has off-the-field concerns and perhaps was misused schematically in school, Lawrence could develop into a highly disruptive force off the edge, and mayhem like that doesn't grow on trees. Or in the French Quarter, as Brugler advises the Saints to take a look at No. 27: "A talent like Lawrence might be too good to pass up in the first round. The former Boise State rusher has a few character flaws (three separate one-game suspensions the past two seasons), but he has quick, active hands along with the natural athletic pass rush skills to create pressure.

ESPN's Todd McShay believes Alabama WR Kevin Norwood is a good fit for the Patriots.

"Not sure Patriots want another young WR," McShay hedged before writing: "Norwood is a fit. Possession wide receiver with a high football IQ (option routes, etc.) and reliable hands." The Patriots have met with Norwood, so we at least know they're intrigued. Norwood (6-foot-2, 198 pounds) ran a 4.48 in Indy, so don't be confused by the "possession" label. What McShay means, instead, is that the Crimson Tide product has great hands, can pluck the ball in traffic, and wins in contested situations. He's underrated, which is a little unbelievable when you consider the program he's coming from.

TMZ is reporting that South Carolina CB Victor Hampton and DT Kelcy Quarles are wanted by the New York City Police Department for questioning in connection to an altercation at a New York nightclub.

The incident in question took place at the Greenhouse nightclub on April 11. Details are hazy at this time, but a fight reportedly broke out in the VIP section in which three men attacked a club promoter and caused "extensive facial injuries." The NYPD told TMZ that the investigation is ongoing, and that no arrests have been made. Both Hampton and Quarles are Day 2 prospects.

Jets GM John Idzik attended Texas Tech TE Jace Amaro's pro day in March.

"He's on Jets short list," tweeted the New York Daily News' Manish Metah, and "will be visiting Florham Park next week." Mehta, a beat writer, noted earlier this month that Amaro could be a second-round target. Amaro (6-foot-5 3/8 and 265 pounds) is a huge and willing -- if not terribly effective -- blocker, but he's not going to earn his paychecks doing grunt work. The Red Raiders' star snagged 106 receptions last year and set an NCAA record for a TE with 1,352 receiving yards. He's a natural on routes, extremely fluid and a quick-twitch mover. He's also capable of exploiting the mismatches his athleticism affords. As you may have ascertained, we rubber stamp a Round 2 selection.

Alabama S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has met with the Lions, Panthers, Titans and Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport adds Ha Ha is scheduled to visit the Bears this week. It is noteworthy that the Lions, Titans and Falcons are all currently slotted in the top 11, and the Bears could be Clinton-Dix's floor. He is a true roaming safety, something that the NFL is coveting at the correct time.

Purdue T Kevin Pamphile has six team visits on his schedule, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

The Patriots, Dolphins, Cardinals, Bucs, Saints and Giants are the six teams. This draft is shallow on third day offensive linemen who can be seen as developmental types, so Pamphile could emerge as a favorite.
