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.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis believes the Dallas Cowboys should trade up for Alabama S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

"Clinton-Dix is my top-rated safety available, and it's hard to see him getting past the Rams at No. 13, so Dallas, which holds the 16th overall pick, should have its sights set on moving ahead of St. Louis," Davis wrote. If the Cowboys decide to stay put at No. 16, they could also target Louisville's Calvin Pryor. Many evaluators have Pryor as the second-ranked safety on the board after Clinton-Dix. Davis believes that it "won't be a surprise if Dallas decides Clinton-Dix is worth the price to move up."

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.

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.

Alabama OG Anthony Steen (labrum) will travel back to Indianapolis for a medical re-check, reports NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

Steen underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum between the end of the season and the Sugar Bowl, an injury that has kept him from showing scouts his stuff. At Alabama's second pro day on April 8, he ran the 40 in 5.37 and 5.40 seconds, and did the short shuttle in 4.72 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.81 seconds. Steen decided to return for his senior season after receiving a third-round grade from the draft advisory board last winter, but it would be a surprise if goes on Day 2 this time around.

Alabama S Vinnie Sunseri believes he will match Adrian Peterson's turnaround from ACL surgery.

Peterson's injury occurred on a Christmas Eve and he was ready to play by Week 1 the next season. Sunseri tore his ACL against Arkansas last October and recorded 40-yard dash times of 4.48 and 4.52 at 209 pounds at Alabama's second pro-day workout on Tuesday. "My therapist, Kevin Wilk, has worked out a bunch of great players. The one person he worked out that I've tried to emulate is Adrian Peterson coming off his ACL," Sunseri said. "He worked out Adrian Peterson, he said I'm neck and neck with Adrian Peterson about how I came off surgery, how I've recovered. It was just an ACL, it wasn't a meniscus, or an MCL or any cartilage (damage). Clean tear, came back good, a great experience. I feel awesome."

Alabama T Cyrus Kouandjio extended his workout at Alabama's second pro-day on Tuesday in an attempt to display his stamina.

Roughly two dozen scouts showed up to watch. "I just wanted to show them that I have pretty good stamina. That type of stuff, you can work on it, you know? On the field work, I think I showed I have talent and skill. I think it was a good workout today," Kouandjio said. Kouandjio, who has a private upcoming workout scheduled with the Buccaneers, said his knee is fine.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell says Alabama T Cyrus Kouandjio has issues with his footwork and balance.

"I think he's very athletic," Cosell said. "I don't think he plays to that athleticism as much as he needs to. He certainly has the size, length and movement to be a quality NFL left tackle, and probably a very good one, but he just doesn't play that way." The analyst mentioned Kouandjio's shoddy technique, surprising given the coaching staff he's coming from. Cosell also said that Kouandjio at times looked like the best LT in college football. Coaching fit will be paramount with this prospect.

Alabama ILB C.J. Mosley will have a pre-draft visit with the Titans between Sunday-Monday.

Inside linebacker isn't Tennessee's greatest need, but a 3-4 squad can never have enough inside muscle. Our NFL Draft coverages' tag team answer to The Hart Foundation, Evan Silva and Josh Norris, listed QB, RB, and DL as Tennessee's greatest roster holes in a recent NFL Draft Needs column. Zach Brown and Wesley Woodyard are the ILB incumbents, but Mosley would step into the NFL as one of the best ILBs out there.

Alabama S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Louisville S Calvin Pryor recently visited the Titans.

A workout had been reported for Clinton-Dix, but a team visit could be considered a higher level of interest. The two safeties are fairly different, with Ha Ha projecting as a rangy free safety, with Pryor winning with aggressiveness. Pryor did play a free safety role while in school, but it might not be the case in the NFL.

Alabama QB AJ McCarron visited the Patriots on Wednesday and is shceduled to trvel to Jacksonville on Friday.

McCarron's name has not been brought up in some time, since he decided to skip the Senior Bowl and threw on a limited basis during the pre-draft process. Teams could view him as a quarterback who limits turnovers, can work through a game plan off play action, rely on a strong running game and good defense. He certainly has his deficiencies, however.

Alabama S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has visited the Ravens and Lions.

Clinton-Dix has also met with the Titans. Ha Ha is one of the few true free safeties in this class, something the Ravens absolutely need with Matt Elam expected to move closer to the line of scrimmage. We consider him a top 10 talent.
Apr 10 - 10:40 AM

ESPN's Joe Schad reports that Alabama S Vinnie Sunseri ran a 4.48 and 4.50 forty at his pro day.

"Former Bama S Vinnie Sunseri ran a 4.48 and 4.50 at pro day; fast recovery from knee injury," Schad tweeted. With Sunseri just four months removed from tearing his ACL, it's quite impressive that the 6-foot, 210-pound safety has showed a strong progress in his recovery. Sunseri has a good chance to be a late Day two or early Day three selection.

Alabama sophomore CB Eddie Jackson tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of spring practices, reports ESPN.com.

As a true freshman last season, Jackson started four games and collected 19 tackles, an interception and two fumble recoveries. The injury occurred during a non-contact drill in practice in which Jackson "came down funny" jumping for the football, according to coach Nick Saban. "We are confident Eddie will make a full recovery and be ready to go this fall," said Saban.

NFL evaluators surprisingly were complimentary of Alabama T Cyrus Kouandjio in an NJ.com article.

"We like him," an NFC scout said. "We have him rated pretty high." An AFC executive called Kouandjio "raw" but said he had "a lot of upside." Kouandjio has been criticized so often throughout the process that you almost forget that his physical gifts and on-field production both scream first-round pick. His medicals and combine performance raise red flags, but apparently the NFL is keeping those concerns in perspective. "He had a bad combine, so that’s going to throw some people off him," an NFC personnel man said. "But he looked good on tape. He’s big, long, and he competes. I like that."
