BYU DE Ziggy Ansah ran forty times of 4.62 and 4.65 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Ansah's official time won't be announced until later Monday, but to put those numbers into perspective, they're the exact same two unofficial times posted by Wisconsin RB Montee Ball. Ansah is beginning to look locked-in as a top-ten pick.

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 each year, 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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Vikings are expected to decline Teddy Bridgewater's fifth-year team option for 2018.

As expected. Bridgewater mangled his knee last summer, forcing the Vikings to swing a deal for Sam Bradford, and Bridgewater still isn't healthy and remains without a timetable for return. Bradford is expected to get an extension at some point, which should allow Bridgewater to hit the open market in 2018. (They're not going to pay both.) He shouldn't be rushing to get back to the field in Minnesota unless Bradford gets hurt. Bridgewater is still just 24 and could be an interesting free-agent case next year.

Raiders acquired RB Marshawn Lynch and a 2018 sixth-round pick from the Seahawks in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round pick.

Lynch is in Oakland Wednesday to take his physical, which he should pass considering he's rarely been injured in his career and is coming off a year in retirement. The Raiders apparently were impressed with Lynch's conditioning at his recent visit. Lynch is getting a two-year deal from the Raiders, though it's likely a one-year pact with an option. He just turned 31 but will be running behind a top-three offensive line, which is a massive upgrade from his final year in Seattle.

Following the reinstatement of Martavis Bryant, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Sammie Coates is "on notice" and competing for a job with Justin Hunter.

Antonio Brown, Bryant, Eli Rogers, and (likely) Darrius Heyward-Bey are locks to make the team. That leaves Coates, Hunter, Cobi Hamilton, and Demarcus Ayers as the current Nos. 5-8 wideouts in no particular order. Coates had a horrific 2016 season filled with drops, but he did suffer a mangled hand that severely limited him much of the second half of the year. Hunter is a similar player with big talent who hasn't been able to put it together, but Big Ben is best QB he's ever had.
