"Several" NFL personnel directors and GMs tell NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah they expect the Jaguars to draft an offensive tackle at No. 2 overall.

We're certainly proponents of NFL teams staying true to their draft boards -- and that might be the case if Jacksonville selected Eric Fisher -- but right tackles have relatively scant NFL value and can be acquired on the cheap. For instance, solid-starting RTs Andre Smith, Tyson Clabo, and Eric Winston are all free agents because they play a devalued position. Fisher is going to be a good player, but the Jaguars wouldn't be drafting for value if they took him.

ESPN reports Marshawn Lynch is ending his holdout, and will report to Seahawks camp in the next 24 hours.

Lynch's ill-fated holdout is over after less than a week. It's likely the only "concession" he'll receive from the Seahawks is the forgiveness of his nearly $500,000 in fines. Going by how half-hearted and ill-conceived Lynch's holdout was, it's quite possible he simply wanted an extra week's vacation. Although Lynch is expected to lose work to talented backup Christine Michael this season, he remains in the RB1 conversation. He shouldn't slip past the teens in fantasy drafts.

Coach Mike Pettine said Johnny Manziel will start to get some reps with the first-string offense soon.

So far, Brian Hoyer has gotten all the first-team reps while Manziel has struggled to complete passes with the backups. That doesn't mean this competition is over, as we still have more more than five weeks until Week 1. Hoyer is a journeyman lacking difference-making talent and is coming off an ACL tear. "I don't think one is ahead of the other," OC Kyle Shanahan said Thursday. "I hope one will make the decision easy on us."

Harold Henderson will hear Josh Gordon's appeal on Friday.

It's not good news for Gordon. A source previously told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer that "you would have a better chance of convincing your teacher your dog ate your homework" than trying to get Henderson to buy a second-hand smoke defense. The Plain Dealer added Thursday that it's a "longshot" Gordon will get off the hook. Commissioner Roger Goodell will not be at the hearing, but is expected to meet with Gordon sometime in the next week.

A source tells NJ.com that David Wilson (neck) "needs a miracle" to return to the field.

Wilson sustained a burner during Tuesday's practice, just a few months after undergoing spinal fusion surgery. His NFL career is now in serious jeopardy. The Giants are not expecting Wilson to get good news when he meets with his surgeon on Monday, leaving them with Andre Williams, Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox behind starter Rashad Jennings.

Mike Wallace (hamstring) will not practice until at least next week.

Wallace said his hamstring was "tight" earlier this week and then sat out Wednesday's session. So he'll rest it for a few days, meaning he'll miss Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage. Wallace's tweak doesn't sound overly severe, but we hate when speed-reliant wideouts have soft-tissue problems in their legs. It's something to monitor once the prime bounce-back candidate does get back on the field.

Colts LG Donald Thomas re-tore his quad during Wednesday's practice and will need surgery.

It's the same injury that cost Thomas the final 14 games of last season. This tear will likely cost him all 16 games this year, meaning he will have played in two games since signing a four-year, $14 million deal with the Colts in March of 2013. It's another stinging blow to the Colts as Thomas was projected to start at left guard, the primary backup center and improve the unit's run blocking. They'll now have to thrust second-round rookie Jack Mewhort into a major role.

NFL Network's Albert Breer's "sense is" Teddy Bridgewater has "closed the gap" on Matt Cassel.

This is certainly the way the wind is blowing. One report even indicated Bridgewater handled more first-team throws than Cassel at Wednesday's practice, by a 13 to 11 count. Christian Ponder opened camp sprinkled in with the ones, but his reps have gone to Teddy. Of all this year's rookie quarterbacks, Bridgewater has emerged as the likeliest to start his team's season opener.

Zac Stacy is getting most of the first-team reps at training camp, as expected.

There was offseason coachspeak in St. Louis suggesting Stacy would have to fight for his starting gig at camp. We never bought it. Rookie Tre Mason has almost no experience in pass protection, and Benny Cunningham only earned 47 carries in 14 games last year. Stacy has borderline RB1 appeal thanks to projected volume as the centerpiece of a Rams team built to pound the football.

Second-round pick Marqise Lee is lining up "all over the field" at Jaguars camp, and OC Jedd Fisch is "finding ways to feed him the ball."

"Marqise has that speed factor," coach Gus Bradley observed. "He has a chance to break one and is extremely quick. He’s freakish in his skill set in some of the things he does." With Allen Robinson at X receiver and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) on the shelf, Lee is working as the Jags' movement Z wideout and getting reps in the slot. He's got a legitimate shot to lead the team in 2014 targets.

Josh Gordon's appeal will be "all or nothing," either resulting in no ban at all or a full-year suspension.

NFLPA spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed to PFT that when the league's disciplinary penalties were established 20 years ago, "the union expressed the strong view that they needed to be stated and mandatory to ensure that all players be treated the same regardless of position, experience, level of ability, or competitive considerations." If the hearing officer determines the violation was "established," Gordon will be "bound" to the one-year suspension. In other words, Gordon's ban could not be reduced to six, eight, or ten games. If the hearing officer finds there was a violation of the league's drug policy, Gordon's one-year ban will stand. If no violation is established, Gordon will be free to play a 16-game schedule barring a short ban related to his July DUI arrest.

Bills signed RB Fred Jackson to one-year, $2.6 million extension through 2015.

The extension comes as somewhat of a surprise. The NFL's oldest running back at 33, Jackson is now signed for roughly $5.24 million over the next two seasons. The arrival of Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon -- as well as a healthy C.J. Spiller -- will almost certainly prevent Jackson from getting the 252 touches he saw last season, but this contract suggests he will remain a big part of a run-first offense. He is well worth selecting as an RB2/flex at his ninth-round ADP.
