Taking over for Jarrett Brown in 2010, this pure passer has excelled. He`s eclipsed 11662 passing yards and 98 TD passes in three years. He had people saying WOAH!

Smith`s signature moment would be that 4th down play to Stedman Bailey. That conversion got them into field goal range. It was a great throw and a great catch. They won that game by a field goal 30-27.

Like Matt Barkley, Geno Smith had two stud wide receivers Stedman Bailey (HS teammate) and Tavon Austin. He took full advantage two wide receivers during the 2012 Orange Bowl putting up a whopping 70 points on the Clemson Tigers led by DeQuan Bowers and Andre Branch. That opened everyone`s eyes to West Virginia’s offense and QB Geno Smith.

Smith was a statistical juggernaut as the West Virginia Mountaineers scored a lot of points in their inaugural season in the Big 12 conference this past season. They were ranked as high as #2 early on in the season. But his Mountaineers finished up at 7-6 with a Pinstripe Bowl loss to Ryan Nassib’s Syracuse Orange (more on him later).

He has the arm strength, ideal arm accuracy, footwork in the pocket. The only thing not to like would be the games he played against the elite defensive teams like LSU, Texas, and K-State etc. He doesn’t the speed that you would think. A great comparison would be an Aaron Brooks with better accuracy but honestly presently he`s more of a Ben Roethlisberger.

Smith is by far the favorite to go #1 by the majority of scouts, I can see why but I don’t think he is as polished or as accomplished as Matt Barkley.

He could end up #1 to KC, 4 to Philly, 7th to Arizona, etc. Smith should be a top 15 pick that’s not my question, but with playing in the Run and Shoot I wonder how that translates, and judging by others like Kevin Kolb, Andre Ware, and Tim Couch… not too well.
