Saints placed G/C Eric Olsen on injured reserve, ending his season.

New Orleans failed to disclose Olsen's injury. The 25-year-old was signed off the Redskins' practice squad in January of 2012. He went on to appear in all 16 games for the Saints last season, making four starts.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursday that free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick has told people he would "rather not play football" than play for the Jets at their latest contract offer.

It's believed Gang Green offered Fitzpatrick a deal worth $7-8 million annually, while FitzMagic has demanded a contract worth upwards of $16 million per year. Fitzpatrick feels low balled and disrespected by the Jets, who want to retain him but are restricted by the salary cap. They could lessen their cap restrictions by trading franchise-tagged Muhammad Wilkerson this weekend.

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports the Chargers won't be taking Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley with the No. 3 overall pick.

It's looking more and more like the Bolts are zeroed in on Oregon DE DeForest Buckner, though Florida State DB Jalen Ramsey is also a possibility. The Bolts have major needs on both lines, but it's more urgent on defense. San Diego could field a quality offensive line if the unit in place simply gets better injury luck.

Raiders owner Mark Davis says the team "will be the Las Vegas Raiders" if the city comes through.

"We have made a commitment to Las Vegas and that's where it stands," Davis said. "If Las Vegas can come through ... we'll be the Las Vegas Raiders. I have never used a city as a bargaining chip. This is real." There's no ambiguity in Davis' words, suggesting it's more than just a leverage play. Davis says the team is ready to contribute $500 million if the city approves a stadium plan. If it's not already too late, it's beginning to look like now-or-never for the city of Oakland.

Appearing on SportsCenter, ESPN's Adam Schefter and Todd McShay agreed that UCLA LB Myles Jack's draft sweet spot is from the Saints at No. 12 overall to the Falcons at No. 17.

However, ESPN's Bob Holtzman -- who is reporting live from 49ers headquarters -- believes Jack is also a "strong possibility" to land in San Francisco. The Niners draft seventh overall, perhaps enlarging Jack's sweet spot. While there no longer seems to be a realistic chance Jack goes in the top-five picks, it does now seem likely that his wait won't last until the draft's second day.

Citing "seven teams," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Alabama ILB Reggie Ragland has been medically flagged for an "enlarged aorta."

The aorta is the body's main artery. Per RapSheet, Ragland's defect is "not expected to alter his football career," but "some teams have pushed him down a bit." Ragland's draft sweet spot is believed to be somewhere in the late teens to the back end of the first round. Rotoworld's Josh Norris has mocked Ragland to Atlanta at No. 17. Rotoworld's Evan Silva has him going 27th to Green Bay.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock suggested Notre Dame LB Jaylon Smith (knee) could slip to the late third or fourth round.

"He's such a great kid that somebody is going to draft him," Mayock said. "If Jaylon went with a third- or fourth-round compensatory pick, it wouldn't surprise me at all. ... I don't think anybody knows where he's going to go." Not expected to play during the 2016 season -- with serious questions about his playing longevity beyond that -- Smith warrants nothing more than a day three or perhaps late-day-two flyer. He'll spend his rookie year on the reserve/NFI list.

Browns LT Joe Thomas was told by team officials they have "no plans" to trade him.

In full rebuild mode, there has been speculation Cleveland would attempt to move the All-Pro for future assets. The Browns have consistently said they plan to keep Thomas, however, and ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi said there was "nothing brewing" on the trade front earlier this month. Cleveland would likely jump at the right offer, but it does not appear they are actively trying to move their best offensive player.

The New York Daily News' Gary Myers is hearing the Giants will "for sure" select an offensive tackle at No. 10 overall.

Per Myers, "that looks like (Michigan State OT) Jack Conklin." Giants GM Jerry Reese has not typically been a slave to need, but he may change things up this year with his job on the line. The G-Men were highly aggressive in free agency, and there is no guarantee they would be able to land a starting offensive tackle in the second or third round. In draft class that's much deeper on defense, they could conceivably get impact defenders on day two.

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reported on SportsCenter that there is "absolutely nothing" going on regarding a Sam Bradford trade.

Sal Pal reports the Eagles got "one phone call from one team" (Denver), and Broncos GM John Elway's overtures were "quickly rebuffed" by Eagles GM Howie Roseman. While we wouldn't totally rule out a Bradford trade, it's certainly appearing highly unlikely at the moment. Roseman seems intent on retaining Bradford to operate as the Eagles' stopgap ahead of rookie Carson Wentz.

ESPN's Ed Werder reported on SportsCenter that the Cowboys believe Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott could help their defense and potentially "change their win total dramatically."

Although Jalen Ramsey is preferred by the scouting department -- and top personnel men Will McClay and Stephen Jones -- there is a belief at Valley Ranch that Elliott could have a DeMarco Murray 2014-like impact, wherein the Cowboys' running-game dominance and ability to control the clock allowed them to "protect" a defense that was short on talent. Dallas' current defense is also full of holes, particularly up front and in the secondary. It's believed Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett are pulling for Elliott over Ramsey at 4.

MMQB's Peter King reports Notre Dame's Ronnie Stanley is the top tackle on the Jaguars' board.

This is mostly academic considering the Jaguars are highly unlikely to draft a tackle at No. 5, but it is more evidence some teams value Stanley over Laremy Tunsil, who was once believed to be the odds-on favorite for the No. 1 pick. The Chargers are reportedly high on Stanley as well, and it is possible he is the first non-quarterback selected. The Chargers are also reportedly interested in DeForest Buckner and Jalen Ramsey.
