NFL.com’s Gil Brandt reports the Philadelphia Eagles (#35) and New York Jets (#39) are expected to take quarterbacks with their second-round picks, and that three QBs are likely to come off the board between picks 33-39. The two likeliest candidates to go early are West Virginia’s Geno Smith and Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib, but don’t sleep on NC State’s Mike Glennon or Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson.
Brandt also reports the Jaguars are leaning toward taking Mississippi State CB Johnthan Banks with the #33 pick, and Banks is already endorsing the move:
