Jaguars meeting with 3 top prospects Wednesday
The Jacksonville Jaguars are set at left tackle with former-first round pick, Eugene Monroe, anchoring the left side of the line; however, the right tackle position couldn't get much worse as Guy Whimper and Cameron Bradfield struggled to protect Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne in 2012.
On Wednesday, the Jaguars will have both of the top two tackle prospects, Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel and Central Michigan's Eric Fisher, in Jacksonville for a visit, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.
While on paper it's a move that makes sense and could solidify the Jaguars line, Monroe is entering a contract year and won't be ok with moving to the right side. If forced, he will almost certainly be on a different team in 2014 leaving the Jaguars with a similar hole. If the draft pick is sent to the right side, the second pick would be an expensive way to solve right tackle, a typically cheaper and lesser-valued position.
Also meeting with the Jaguars on Wednesday, per O'Halloran, is Oregon defensive end/outside linebacker Dion Jordan, considered by many to be the best pass rusher in the draft.
Geno still making the rounds
Essentially every team at the very top of the 2013 NFL Draft order has displayed some level of interest in West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, including the Philadelphia Eagles who haven't ruled out the idea of selecting a quarterback, despite having both Michael Vick and Nick Foles on roster.
Whether a smokescreen or not, the Eagles are continuing to show interest and will reportedly have Smith in Philadelphia for a visit on Wednesday, according to Adam Caplan of PhiladelphiaEagles.com.
Interest in Nassib heating up
If interest from NFL teams is any indication of actual draft stock, Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib could be a top selection as he's drawn the eyes of several teams.
The Jets may be in need of a replacement for former-fifth overall selection, Mark Sanchez, who finished 2012 with 13 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. If Nassib is available in the second round for the Jets, he's the type of player that could provide legitimate competition without a high enough draft pick to instantly make him in a full-time investment.
The ambiguously tweeting duo
Many NFL prospects enjoy Twitter, but not many tweet details about their visits or the insider aspects of the pre-Draft process. LSU safety Eric Reid and Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore each sent out tweets on Wednesday morning that would seem to indicate private visits, although they were too ambiguous to know for sure.

Judging by the tweets, Moore would appear to be on a visit with the Ravens while Reid looks to have a visit with the Jaguars; however, that isn't necessarily the nature of their trips.
