San Francisco 49ers tight end and former University of Maryland standout Vernon Davis just talked to the Baltimore media via conference call. Here are his thoughts on different topics: On playing on a short week: “I think it's all mental. We can't let that worry us. We just have to go out and do our job, make the most out of our opportunities and just take advantage of what we have in front of us, and just play. We're a winning team right now. We have to continue to stay in that direction.

Setting the scene: The Ravens and San Francisco 49ers took the field in helmets and shorts at 10:30 a.m. and practiced for about two and a half hours under sunny skies at the Under Armour Performance Center. Finally, a weakness: Not that we're looking for things that rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley doesn't do well, but given the glowing reports he's gotten, it's worth noting when he struggles - even if it's something the entire league struggles with. Early in seven-on-seven drills, Mosley was beaten in coverage for a touchdown by San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis.

SANTA CLARA -- So which Vernon Davis will we see in Super Bowl XLVII? Will it be the man who made just six catches for 61 yards over the final six regular-season games? Or the guy who in two postseason games has caught six balls for 150 yards and a touchdown while being targeted 11 times? It's probably a better question for the Baltimore Ravens and how they choose to defend the 49ers' dangerous tight end, but to date, they haven't been forthcoming with answers. In NFC Championship game, though, the Atlanta Falcons clearly didn't make Davis a major focal point of their pass defense and paid dearly as a result.

National draft analysts have released a wave of new mock drafts after the NFL scouting combine wrapped up last week, but we continue to see many of the same names -- especially Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans and tight end Eric Ebron -- linked to the Ravens at pick No. 17 with few exceptions. Baltimore Sun reporter Matt Vensel takes a look at which prospects are being "mocked" to the Ravens: Dane Brugler, CBS Sports: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M . “The Ravens have deep threats at receiver with Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown, but could use a larger, more physical talent for Joe Flacco to target,” Brugler wrote.

Each Sunday, Ralph Friedgen flips through the NFL games on television, looking for kids he coached at the University of Maryland. Watching them play now brings him back, maybe to a practice where he pulled one of them aside for one-on-one teaching or to quiet moment away from the field. He thinks about how they've grown. Friedgen, who was forced into retirement following the 2010 season, will have three former players in New Orleans for Sunday's Super Bowl: Vernon Davis, a veteran tight end and star for the San Francisco 49ers; wide receiver Torrey Smith, who has become one of the most exciting playmakers for the Ravens; and his teammate and Baltimore native LaQuan Williams, an important special teams player before being sidelined with a hamstring injury late in the season.

Smith completed 20 of 26 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns, and running back Frank Gore shouldered the rest of the offensive load with 112 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski and the chairman of the Senate Veterans' Affairs committee said yesterday that they would push for legislation to close a loophole in a federal law that allowed the killer of a Hagerstown couple to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Mikulski, a Baltimore Democrat, and Republican Sen. Larry E. Craig of Idaho want to amend a 1997 law that was aimed at preventing veterans convicted of serious crimes from being interred at military cemeteries. Craig also said he was introducing a measure that would require the remains of Russell Wayne Wagner to be removed from the Virginia cemetery, site of the grave of former President John F. Kennedy and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
