ProFootballTalk reported Wednesday that Farley was asymptomatic and felt “completely normal.” The Virginia Tech product hasn’t played in a college game since 2019. He opted out of the 2020 season due to the pandemic and missed the NFL combine while recovering from back surgery.

Despite his extended absence, Farley is still projected to be a potential first-round pick. He’s listed at 6-foot-2, 207 pounds and might have been the top cornerback off the board had he not missed the season and undergone surgery. Farley finished his Virginia Tech career with six interceptions and 19 passes defended in 23 games over two seasons.
