03:08 PM ET 05.22 | One of the strangest stories to come out of the NFL Draft surrounded Geno Smith's reasons for his epic tumble into the second round. While a Yahoo! Sports article claimed that scouts were and may still be under the impression the former West Virginia quarterback is a diva, Smith blamed his agent and promptly fired him after his draft slide. He now has found new representation and has signed with Jay-Z's Roc Nation agency. If there's a guy who can chew up and spit out even then cruelest of sports agents, it's going to be Jay-Z who has failed at nothing he's tried. But Smith will be represented by Kim Miale, who currently only has two other clients -- a kicker and linebacker who both remain inactive. So when Smith says he's not joining Roc Nation as an "image thing," you better believe he's not joking with an agent like Miale.

Dee Milliner fired his agent right after the draft, too. I wonder if he'll be following Geno to Roc Nation.

These guys are so impressed with themselves, delusional too.
They all, including the Rapper, have a long way to fall.
The NFL will be happy to show them the way.

Geno now has 99 problems, but an agent ain't one. Hopefully Jay & Kim will be able to get him a contract, so he'll have a little less of a hard knock life.
