Jets selected West Virginia QB Geno Smith with the No. 39 overall pick.

Good night, Mark Sanchez. The most discussed prospect in this year's class is the second quarterback off the board, and vaults to the top of the Jets' QB scrap heap. Smith (6-2, 218) was a three-year starter who set career highs in completion rate (71.2), TD:INT ratio (42:6) and passer rating (163.9) last season. He took only 19 sacks in 13 games, while his 42 TDs led the nation. His performance declined as the year wore on, however, as his footwork got sloppy and his field vision regressed. Smith has starting-caliber arm strength and accuracy when set, but missed too many open throws late in the year. Regardless, there's little doubt Smith is being drafted as Sanchez's replacement, and not "competition." It's a new era for the Jets, who have come away with three very good players with their first three picks.

Ladarius Green underwent offseason ankle surgery and won't participate in OTAs.

Green ended last season on I.R. with an ankle injury that apparently required some sort of operation/clean-up procedure, which is believed to have happened in January, according to Chargers beat writer Michael Gehlken. He hasn't participated in offseason workouts and is without a timetable for return, though it's likely the Steelers are just being cautious. Obviously, the Steelers felt comfortable enough with Green's ankle to give him a four-year, $20 million contract. Green's recovery is worth monitoring this summer, but we tentatively expect him back for camp.

Eagles OC Frank Reich said calling Sam Bradford the clear No. 1 quarterback is "probably not the right impression."

This contradicts what coach Doug Pederson has said all along, that Bradford is "the guy" at quarterback. "No, that's probably not the right impression," Reich said when asked if Bradford is the clear No. 1. "This is one of the most competitive industries in the world and so, to say that there’s not competition, that’s just the furthest thing from the truth." Odds are still heavily favoring Bradford to start Week 1 thanks to his hefty salary, but if Carson Wentz blows up this preseason, it'll be hard to keep the No. 2 pick off the field.

A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Tyler Eifert "could miss the first couple of games of the season" following Wednesday's ankle surgery.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Eifert is undergoing surgery to "repair a loose ligament on the side of his foot," and the "worst-case scenario" is Eifert "to be out the first few games" of the season. Eifert initially injured his ankle in the Pro Bowl, and it's been giving him fits ever since. It may be around midseason before Eifert truly makes an impact since he'll miss the entire offseason.

According to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson, the Dolphins "continue to monitor" free agent Arian Foster.

The Dolphins have been the team most-heavily linked to Foster since he visited them in March. Foster is expected to be medically cleared in as little as a week, so it looks like his market is going to heat up well before training camp. The Dolphins have said all the right things about second-year RB Jay Ajayi, but he can't get too comfortable atop the depth chart.

Raiders owner Mark Davis believes moving the team to Las Vegas would "unite the Raider nation."

"The Raider fans in Northern California get upset a little bit when we talk about going to Los Angeles, and the L.A. fans get a little ticked off at the fans in Northern California, so it seems like Las Vegas is a neutral site that everybody’s kind of bought into," Davis tried to rationalize. "It will unite the Raider nation more than divide it." If Davis were right, it would be the first time in the history of professional sports that moving a team "united" a fanbase. Davis isn't trying to move the team to unite Raiders fans. He's doing it because it would make him richer and there's no stadium solution on the horizon in Oakland.

A source tells ESPN's Rob Demovsky Eddie Lacy still weighs "in the 240s."

It means Lacy was tipping the scales near 260 last season, as he's believed to have lost 15-18 pounds. Lacy weighed in at 231 at the Combine. Speaking Wednesday, coach Mike McCarthy suggested the team still wants Lacy to lose more weight. "Eddie will be fine," McCarthy said. "I believe he'll hit the target that we're all looking for when the lights come on." McCarthy also reiterated that Lacy "cannot play at the weight he was at (last) year." Lacy should have more P90X on tap for the summer.

Cowboys OG Ronald Leary is skipping OTAs as he seeks a trade.

Playing under his one-year, $2.553 million restricted free agent tender, Leary wants out of Big D after spending 75 percent of 2015 as a healthy scratch. Leary was a starter in 2013-14, but fell behind talented rookie La'El Collins early last season. The Cowboys seem willing to move Leary, but executive Stephen Jones has said he won't be "given away." Leary is a $2.553 million redundancy for the Cowboys' dominant line. A trade is probably an inevitability.

The league has awarded the 2019-21 Super Bowls to Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles, respectively.

Atlanta and its new stadium beat out New Orleans for the right to host Super Bowl LIII. In our opinion, any decision that involves not playing a Super Bowl in New Orleans is a poor one. Miami and Los Angeles were the heavy favorites for the next two games. Rams owner Stan Kroenke continues to get his way after his years-long, and league-approved, plan to move his team from St. Louis.

Raiders DE/OLB Mario Edwards (neck) is participating in OTAs.

Edwards tweeted earlier this month that he had been fully cleared, and this confirms it. It's the best possible news after a late-2015 injury left his career in doubt. The issue revealed a genetic condition the 2015 second-rounder didn't know he was dealing with. Edwards had a strong rookie season, and could be a big part of the Raiders' on-the-rise front seven if he stays healthy.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Tyler Eifert (ankle surgery) is "in jeopardy" for Week 1.

Eifert would basically have to have no snags in his rehab to be ready, and "no snags" has never been Eifert's health M.O. Eifert will undoubtedly miss the entire preseason, and likely spend the majority of camp on the active/PUP list. Barring a major setback, he should be able to avoid reserve/PUP, which would cost him six games.

Larry Fitzgerald has "no idea" if 2016 will be his final season.

Fitz has previously admitted this could be his final campaign, but was more coy on Tuesday. "Honestly, I have no idea," Fitz said. "I really don't look at it like that." Fitz averaged a career low 11.1 yards per reception last season, but it was largely by design. He worked underneath with Michael Floyd and John Brown doing damage downfield. Fitz was far less productive with Floyd at full health, but still posted a sparkling 109/1,215/9 line. Although he's going on 33, there's little doubt Fitz could physically play more than one season. The question is if the mental steam will remain.
