Hakeem Nicks was held out of practice Thursday with a sore knee.

It's a flareup of the same knee that has bothered Nicks for the past two months. "Hopefully it will subside, and he'll be ready to go," said coach Tom Coughlin. Considering Nicks' history, he must be viewed as questionable to face the Saints on Sunday. Check back Friday afternoon to see if the knee cooperates enough to return to practice.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports there is "growing chatter" the Jaguars will select Clemson QB Deshaun Watson with the No. 4 overall pick.

The general consensus around the draft community is none of the available quarterbacks are worth a pick in the top-five, but that is not enough to prevent a couple from coming off the board in the first four picks -- the Browns are rumored to be considering UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky at No. 1 overall. Of course, this could all just be bluster from teams hoping to goad one of the quarterback-needy organizations into a trade up. We will find out for sure tonight.

Titans GM Jon Robinson said there is a "50/50" chance he will be able to trade down in the first round.

Sitting just ahead of the Jets, the Titans could be in a prime spot if the Browns decide to pass on UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky at No. 1 overall. Any team which covets Trubisky will want to jump New York to ensure they land him, and that gives Tennessee more leverage than some of the other teams looking to move down. The Titans are likely looking to recoup the second-round pick they traded away last year.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky is "square in consideration" for the Browns with the No. 1 overall pick.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn had Trubisky at No. 1 in his mock, NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah wrote the uncertainty in this draft "starts at pick one," and Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports two teams looking at quarterbacks believe Cleveland will either take Trubisky at No. 1 or trade up to grab him with the No. 2 or 3 picks. At this point, there is enough smoke to assume Cleveland really is considering Trubisky with the first pick regardless of if that is a smart move or not. If Trubisky does come off the board first, the 49ers will field an avalanche of calls from teams looking to move up to land Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett.

UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky is the No. 1 overall pick in Bob McGinn's final mock draft.

McGinn is longtime NFL reporter for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel who annually produces one of the most accurate mock drafts, as recorded by The Huddle Report. McGinn and Mike Mayock both have top-six mock scores over the past half decade among over 100 entrants. Both McGinn and Mayock have Trubisky landing with the Browns, although McGinn has Trubisky going No. 1 overall, and Myles Garrett going No. 2 to the 49ers. Mayock has the Browns taking Garrett at No. 1 and trading up for Trubisky at No. 5. Mock drafts are a lot of fun, yet incredibly unreliable. We'll find out what happens in real life tonight.

The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports the Ravens have "considerable interest" in Western Michigan WR Corey Davis, and Davis is "one of their stronger options" at the No. 16 overall pick.

Wilson presently covers the Texans, but he wrote for the Carroll County Times and Baltimore Sun for many years on the Ravens' beat, so his reporting is noteworthy. The Ravens' wideout group is among the weakest in football with Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman returning atop the depth chart. Davis has the best game film of any receiver in this draft. He played in the MAC, however, and did not work out before the draft due to ankle surgery.

Browns LT Joe Thomas said Wednesday that he is experiencing short-term memory loss, but he is "willing to accept" the risks of continuing his career.

Thomas has famously never missed an NFL snap and has no documented concussions in his history. "Short-term memory loss -- hard times remembering things that have happened recently," said Thomas, 32. "Like, you walk to the grocery store and you're like, 'Huh, I can't remember what I needed to get.'" Thomas said his hope is medicine will "continue to improve" to a point where he can be treated should he develop any sort of dementia related to football.

A league source told Profootballtalk.com that the "current buzz" is Ohio State CB Gareon Conley will slip into round three after he was accused of rape by a Cleveland woman this week.

It's better than not being drafted at all, of course, which became a distinct possibility when the allegations were made. Our takeaway from this report is that NFL teams are putting in time on Conley's situation and may be determining that they believe the allegations to be potentially false. Before being accused of the felony crime, Conley was a sure-fire first-round prospect.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette is "not sure the (Steelers') staff has any hopes" for Ladarius Green (concussions).

Along the same lines as conditionally-reinstated WR Martavis Bryant, the Steelers will likely view anything they get from Green this year as a bonus. Jesse James returns as Pittsburgh's primary in-line tight end, and Ben Roethlisberger has lobbied for a receiving option at the position. Bouchette indicated he expects the Steelers to draft a tight end, possibly on day two.

Packers signed RG Jahri Evans, formerly of the Saints.

The Packers have a gaping hole at right guard after losing T.J. Lang. Don Barclay was penciled in, but he's been brutal in past starting chances. Evans, 34, offers short-term security. Green Bay would be wise to draft help. Evans started all 16 games last season and made 169 career starts for New Orleans.

Asked about his running backs, coach Jay Gruden acknowledged Matt Jones is "still on the roster" but "didn't have much good to say about him."

Gruden used all of his breath propping up Rob Kelley, third-down back Chris Thompson, and former UDFA Mack Brown. Jones lost his biggest in-house supporter when GM Scot McCloughan was fired. Jones appears to be on the outside looking in for a roster spot. Once/if the Redskins add another back, Jones could be a goner.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports if the Browns fail to land UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky in the first round, Cal QB Davis Webb will be the target at No. 33 overall.

On Tuesday, Pauline reported Webb is drawing a ton of interest from teams at the top of Round 2. He's expected to be one of the first five quarterbacks off the board, and there was some chatter earlier this month that Webb has a chance to go in the first round. If the Browns are unable to move up from No. 12 overall to get to Trubisky, they could be in position to go with Clemson's Deshaun Watson, but it's unclear who Cleveland prefers as their Plan B behind Trubisky.
