NFL Network's Ian Rapoport doesn't expect the Ravens to release LT Eugene Monroe.

According to RapSheet, Monroe (shoulder) is still injured, and the Ravens could slide No. 6 overall pick Ronnie Stanley inside to guard. That all makes some sense, but when asked about Monroe after picking Stanley, the Ravens declined to comment. The writing has been on the wall that Baltimore doesn't trust Monroe to stay on the field after he's missed 16 games the past two years.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cowboys are "attempting" to acquire the No. 32 overall pick from the Browns.

According to RapSheet, the Cowboys' "likely target" is a pass rusher. Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris' top available edge rusher left on the board is Eastern Kentucky's Noah Spence. Spence has some off-field issues related to drugs, so maybe the Cowboys, who have already lost their two starting ends to suspensions, will shy away from him. Either way, they need help off the edge.

Coach Jeff Fisher said the "goal" is for No. 1 pick Jared Goff to be the Week 1 starting quarterback.

As expected. The Rams don't have the luxury to sit their first-round quarterback behind a quality veteran stopgap like the Eagles do with Sam Bradford and Carson Wentz. And that certainly played into the Rams' decision between Goff and Wentz. Wentz may have the higher long-term ceiling, but Goff is viewed by most as the more pro-ready prospect. Case Keenum will hold the clipboard, while the Rams attempt to unload Nick Foles either this draft weekend or this summer.

ESPN's Rich Cimini believes Denver's decision to draft Paxton Lynch could facilitate Ryan Fitzpatrick's return to the Jets.

The Broncos never pursued Fitzpatrick, but any chance he had of going to Denver died as soon as GM John Elway traded for draft Lynch at No. 26. Denver's quarterback opening gave Fitzpatrick leverage in negotiations with New York, but now the Jets are the only team with a "Help Wanted" sign. So far Fitzpatrick has held firm at his $16 million a year asking price, but he's lost most of his negotiating power and will have to settle for less if he wants to rejoin Gang Green.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith will undergo a second surgery on his surgically-repaired foot this week to remove the screws from the first procedure.

This helps explain why GM Ozzie Newsome tried so hard to trade up to No. 4 for Jalen Ramsey. The Ravens "hope" Smith will only miss 4-6 weeks. If so, Smith should be ready for training camp. But it's obviously a concern after Smith didn't play well at all last season coming off of a Lisfranc fracture.

According to an NFL medical source who spoke with ESPN's Ed Werder, Myles Jack's knee injury is "more troubling in some ways" than Jaylon Smith's.

Smith tore his left ACL and MCL in his final college game and has already been ruled out for 2016. While Smith's injury will heal over time, the fear is that Jack's knee will continue to deteriorate. Jack admitted the possibility of microfracture surgery at some point. Per ESPN's Darren Rovell, Jack has a "loss of value" insurance policy that kicks in if he's still on the board at pick No. 45.

49ers GM Trent Baalke said the team has not made any decisions on RT Anthony Davis because "he's retired."

Davis criticized the 49ers' front office earlier this week in a tweet that has since been deleted. The former first-round pick has spent most of the offseason hyping his comeback but has not taken any of the necessary steps for reinstatement. "Right now, he’s not in the National Football League," said Baalke. "So there’s no reason to even speculate on what we’re going to do or what we might do." Baalke rightly feels he has better things to do than worry about criticism from a player who isn't even in the NFL.

49ers WR Quinton Patton's right arm is in a cast and he isn't participating in voluntary workouts.

Patton's injury is currently unknown, but he's missing out on quality install time in new coach Chip Kelly's offense. With DeAndre Smelter and Dres Anderson now healthy, and CFL import Eric Rogers now in the fold, Patton won't be gifted the No. 3 receiver gig like he was last season. He's on the bubble.

Lions GM Bob Quinn said first-rounder Taylor Decker will compete with "the rest of the tackles on the roster" and can play left or right tackle.

It's become abundantly clear that the Lions don't feel comfortable with Reiff on Matthew Stafford's blind side. "We’re not going to pinpoint him, now or until we’re ready to play a game, at what position, what side of the ball," Quinn said. "He is a tackle, so he’ll either be right tackle or left tackle and that’s really to be determined." Decker started 42 games at left tackle at Ohio State.

The Ravens declined to comment on LT Eugene Monroe after selecting OT Ronnie Stanley with the No. 6 overall pick in the draft.

Monroe is expected to be traded or released with Stanley now in the fold as the left tackle of the future and most likely the present. Rick Wagner will remain at right tackle. Monroe has missed a combined 16 games over the past two years and has become unreliable on Joe Flacco's blind side. The Ravens can clear $6.5 million in cap space by making Monroe a post-June 1 cut.

Coach Jay Gruden said watching first-round WR Josh Doctson's tape "reminded him in some ways" of A.J. Green.

Gruden, of course, coached Green before becoming the Redskins' coach. Doctson gives the Redskins something they lacked before Thursday night: size at wide receiver. Pierre Garcon was their biggest weapon outside at 6-feet tall. Doctson stands 6-foot-2 and has the leaping ability to high-point the ball downfield and as an option to pair with Jordan Reed in the red zone.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim reports "nothing will change" regarding Pierre Garcon's roster status after Washington used the No. 22 overall pick on WR Josh Doctson.

In the final year of his contract, soon-to-be 30-year-old Garcon is set to count $10.2 million against the cap, and the Redskins can clear $8 million of that by releasing him. Already up against the cap after inking CB Josh Norman to a big deal last week, the Redskins plan to stand pat and ease in Doctson. Cutting WR Andre Roberts and his $4 million salary should be as easier call.

The Vikings believe first-round WR Laquon Treadwell will get faster the further removed he is from his 2014 broken fibula and dislocated ankle.

Treadwell will never burn up the turf like Corey Coleman and Will Fuller, as he wins with route precision, physicality, and ball skills at 6'2/221. But if he can improve his speed from 4.64 into the 4.5 range, it'd be a big boost. Treadwell landed in a fine spot as the Vikings' Z receiver to Stefon Diggs' X.

Coach Hue Jackson gushed about first-round WR Corey Coleman.

"What a tremendous athlete and the suddenness and quickness," Jackson said. "This guy's arrow is just going to go through the roof. ... He scores touchdowns. The guy, he can light it up from anywhere on the field." Coleman to the Browns was one of our favorite picks of the opening round, and he's going to a great coach in Jackson who won't be shy about featuring him. Coleman has the ability make an immediate impact as the Browns' No. 1 receiver.

The Bears confirmed they want first-round LB Leonard Floyd to gain weight.

"We can get him stronger, we can get him bigger," GM Ryan Pace said. "We can't get him faster and more athletic." The Bears salivated over Floyd's length (6'6/244), speed, and athleticism, and moved up two spots to No. 9 to grab him. Expect Floyd to be more of a sub-package rusher, either off the edge or from the inside, out of the gate until he gets strong enough to stand up against the run.
