Addressing Deadspin's report that his supposedly deceased girlfriend never existed, Notre Dame ILB Manti Te'o issued a statement Wednesday saying he was a "victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies."

Te'o contends that he made up the stories of actually meeting Lennay Kekua, his reported girlfriend, because he was embarrassed to admit their relationship only consisted of online interaction. Therefore, he never met her, but Te'o was still invested in a very serious relationship. "To think that I shared with them my happiness about my relationship and details that I thought to be true about her just makes me sick," Te'o wrote. The Irish linebacker was notified of the findings prior to the BCS Championship game, so some might contend it affected his performance. Te'o can expect endless quizzing on the subject from NFL teams during Combine interviews. He will not participate at the Senior Bowl.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein says Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield being the No. 1 overall pick to the Browns "is happening."

Mel Kiper has moved Mayfield to being the first overall pick, as has Daniel Jeremiah. If that is the case, the No. 2 pick with the Giants is now a fascinating selection with Sam Darnold and the trickle down from there.

The Saints placed calls about a potential "big leap" up from No. 27, according to Ian Rapoport.

It would only make sense for a quarterback, top corner or edge rusher. The Saints do not have a second round pick after trading for Alvin Kamara last year, so a trade up would involve their 2019 first round pick.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah connected the Ravens with South Dakota State TE Dallas Goedert at No. 16 overall in his final mock.

Jeremiah got his start in scouting with the Ravens. Me mentions the player, team connection might come in a trade down. Most importanlty, Jeremiah makes it clear the Ravens must exit this draft with a tight end, and this would be a statement selection.

The MMQB's Albert Breer relays word that Bears GM Ryan Pace likes Ohio State CB Denzel Ward "a lot."

The Bears are most often connected to Roquan Smith or Tremaine Edmunds in order to upgrade the linebacker group, but Ward has a realy shot of being the pick at No. 8 as the first corner off the board. Breer notes this information comes from people on the Bears staff in 2017.

ESPN's Adam Schefter states there is "a mounting belief" among NFL GMs and coaches that Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will be the Browns' selection at No. 1.

It should be noted that John Dorsey is still keeping this a secret. There are plenty of voices in the Browns' draft room, and Dorsey must narrow down his decision to what he believes. However, bringing in a respected evaluator like Scot McCloughan, who previously stated Mayfield was his top quarterback, might help Baker's case for No. 1.

On the Stick to Football podcast, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller reported that five teams have taken Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch off their draft boards because of a "neck" and/or "spine" issue.

Miller explains: "It's a spine problem where they feel like it's narrowing. And for some teams that's just too much of a problem. It's too scary for them, they're not going to take that risk." Miller was unequivocal in his report. This dispatch mirrors news first reported by Walter Football's Charlie Campbell a little over a week ago. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom reported that Vander Esch's medical report included a concussion, a c-spine nerve injury and a minor knee injury. The concussion and pinched nerve occurred on the same play in 2016, injuries that ended his season prematurely. Whether the "narrowing" that Miller vaguely alludes to has anything to do with that injury or not is not yet known. Expect for this to be a storyline all day Thursday. Vander Esch has been considered a consensus Round 1 prospect throughout the process. We'll find out on Thursday night whether this news effects that status.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Louisville QB Lamar Jackson to former NFL QB Michael Vick.

Obvious comp is obvious, but that doesn't make it any less accurate. As Zierlein notes, Jackson has "rare speed and athleticism" for the position, but he can also drive the football with velocity while also putting "feathery" touch on the deep ball. Zierlein also notes that there will have to be significant changes to his footwork, and he needs to improve his pocket awareness. Jackson will probably need to sit for a year as a "redshirt," but the upside provided by his legs and arms is quite palpable.

UMass redshirt junior OT Jack Driscoll transferred to Auburn as a graduate.

Driscoll (6'5/294) started all 12 games for the minutemen in 2017 and was named to the Phil Steele All-Independent First Team as well as the All-Eastern College Athletic Conference Second Team. Driscoll is a good addition for the Tigers who not only lost four starters from last year's offensive line but Nick Brahms, Kaleb Kim and Tucker Brown struggled through injuries this spring. Driscoll should have a good chance to start right away.

Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot states the team's choice at No. 1 could be down to Wyoming QB Josh Allen or Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield.

There are a lot of "coulds" and "seems to" in this report, but this statement is clear. "Sources say the Browns have cooled on the USC passer in recent days and that Allen and Mayfield have surpassed him," Cabot writes. We expect Dorsey to reveal to his staff who will be the selection at no. 1 overall, and we think it is Sam Darnold. But any of the three names make sense.

NFL Media's Peter Schrager believes the Giants will select NC State pass rusher Bradley Chubb at No. 2 overall.

From a Dave Gettleman team philosophy standpoint, Chubb makes total sense. But the buzz around Saquon Barkley is just too strong to deny. "The defensive front seven is where Gettleman's made his bones...this makes too much sense," Schrager writes. Again, we agree, but Saquon is the easy projection.

NFL Media's Tom Pelissero interviewed one anonymous Offensive Coordinator who said Louisville's Lamar Jackson "will not be able to play (quarterback) in this league, mark my words."

"When he throws, he hopes," the coordinator concluded. Pelissero's piece is outstanding, and you should check it out. Jackson checks in as the fifth quarterback. "They had a progression-based offense. You can see it. But then, when you talk to him, he can't verbalize it for you," a quarterback coach added, anonymously.
