FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets have selected West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith with their second-round pick in the NFL draft.
After falling through the first round Thursday, Smith was taken by New York on Friday night as the likely future replacement for Mark Sanchez, the team's first-rounder in 2009 who has struggled mightily the past two seasons.
Smith could compete for the starting job this season with Sanchez, who is owed $8.25 million in guaranteed money this season.
The Jets currently have Sanchez, David Garrard, Tim Tebow, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms - and now Smith - as quarterbacks on their roster.
The Jets drafted Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner with the ninth overall pick and Missouri defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson at No. 13 in the first round Thursday night.
