Just moments after the Dallas Cowboys selected Noah Brown, the New York Jets announced another former Ohio State wide receiver, Devin Smith, will miss the entire 2017 NFL season. He suffered a torn ACL in his right knee at the team's first offseason workout.

Smith, who was the key deep threat in the Buckeyes' 2014 national championship run, was selected by the Jets with the 37th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft. He tore the same ACL during his rookie campaign, an issue which lingered well into his second season.

Smith has managed just 10 catches for 135 yards and a touchdown in his professional career.
