Four days after Geno Smith slid out of the first round of the draft, the former West Virginia quarterback fired his agents due to his displeasure over his draft position, according to sources.

The Daily News has learned that Smith thought that he would and should be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. Sources told the News that Smith’s agents from Select Sports Group gave him no a$surance of his draft position.

The Jets drafted Smith, who was atop Gang Green’s quarterback rankings, with the eighth pick in the second round (39th overall), which didn’t sit well with him. Smith can’t hire another agent for five days.

Despite Smith’s draft position, new general manager John Idzik made it clear that he still believes the rookie will be under the microscope.

“If you’re a first-round quarterback — first-round any position – the spotlight is a little bit brighter,” Idzik said on ESPN radio’s Mike & Mike show on Tuesday morning. “Him coming in as a second rounder, perhaps it’s a little dim, but being that he’s in the New York market, he’s at a high profile position, I think he’s going to be center stage regardless.”

Geno Smith thought he would be a top-10 draft pick, maybe even first overall. Instead, he went in the second round.

Kid reacted poorly to this by firing his agent, the reason he slipped was because of his game. He was not #1 pick material at any point imo

I really can't stand him. When it comes to the Jets he always tries to pull something out of his a$s but if its the Giants which is who he really covers. He acts like their diarrhea is gold

What check are you referring to? The one his new agent will be negotiating?
