Jerry Jones wants to bring the NFL Draft to Jerry World

And whatever the Cowboys owner wants, the NFL usually gives him.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

After two successful years in Chicago -- according to whatever definition of success the NFL is using for it these days -- could the NFL Draft be headed to Jerry World? The Cowboys owner said Thursday morning on his radio show that he would like to host the draft. That's not far-fetched. The league has said it will likely make the draft a road show, and Jones pulls a lot of weight among NFL owners. (Who do you think got the Rams to Los Angeles?)

QUARTERBACKS AND CHEESESTEAKS: Carson Wentz is officially an Eagle now. He had his first cheesesteak, and it was from Jim's. Has Sam Bradford ever eaten a cheesesteak? If he did, a cursory Google search cannot find evidence of it. Heck, even Mark Sanchez chowed down on some processed meat and cheese during his time in Philly.

RGIII THE STATUE: RGIII poses as a mannequin, surprises students. Not a bad stunt.

MANZIEL TURNS HIMSELF IN: Johnny Manziel turns himself in before domestic violence hearing. Manziel is being indicted on a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from a domestic violence incident with his ex-girlfriend.

A PARTNERSHIP IN MIAMIThe Dolphins are betting big on Laremy Tunsil. "This whole thing should be an awakening for Tunsil," one general manager told SB Nation. "It could be the best thing that ever happened for this kid."

VEGAS LOVES THE PATRIOTSPatriots are 2017 Super Bowl favorites despite Tom Brady's DeflateGate suspension. With the NFL Draft over, the Patriots and even the Browns have better Super Bowl 51 odds.

DONKEYS DOWN: Did the Denver Broncos have the worst offseason in the NFL? People outside of Denver think the Broncos have had a rough go at it this offseason, but is it really as bad as they say?

MILLER EXTENSION COMINGVon Miller: "I'm going to be a Denver Bronco for life." Von Miller won't show up to offseason workouts, but the pass rusher isn't worried about getting a new contract, declaring that he plans to be a "Denver Bronco for life." Making this happen would put an end to questions about John Elway having a terrible offseason.

NEVER TWEET: NFL teams, please stop tweeting about Star Wars. In an attempt to be relevant, NFL teams put out plenty of Star Wars-related content on May the Fourth.

STEEL CURTAIN, PART 2? The second coming of the Pittsburgh Steelers and their "Steel Curtain" defensive line. Could it be?

STIFF ARMS: Travis Kelce and Rob Gronkowski have the best stiff arms in the NFL.
