    STRENGTHS: Possesses all of the traits scouts are looking for in a franchise quarterback. Can make every NFL throw, showing pinpoint accuracy on short, intermediate and deep routes. Very good deep ball passer. Has the touch and accuracy to lead his receivers away from defenders. Quick setup and delivery. Has a fluid, over-the-top release which makes up for less-than-ideal but adequate height. Has generally shown the confidence to drive passes through tight windows, throwing his receivers open even when they are covered. Good athleticism to slide in and around the pocket to buy time. Good field vision. Checks down to his second and third options. Has the speed and elusiveness to gain yards in chunks but will exhaust his passing options before running. Hard worker.

    WEAKNESSES: His confidence was shaken noticeably during the 2012 season. Fails to account for blitzers too often for a quarterback with his experience. Inconsistent setup and delivery, failing to set his feet and resulting in some fluttering passes. Has struggled in poor weather conditions, including the final game of his career (New Era Pinstripe Bowl). Demonstrative leadership will be considered a negative by some. Took virtually all of his snaps out of the shotgun in a relatively simple offense.

    COMPARES TO: Alex Smith, Chiefs -- Each is a highly efficient, accurate passer with the mobility to force defenses to account for their dual-threat capabilities, with Geno being the more accurate deep-ball passer but the same questions apply to the WVU product -- will his skills translate to a more traditional, NFL offense?

    NFL Comparison

    Aaron Brooks

    Bottom Line


    Though Smith has had his ups and downs as a passer in West Virginia's prolific spread offense, NFL general managers appreciate his ultra-competitive nature, athleticism, arm strength and quick delivery. The Mountaineer turned down a Senior Bowl invitation after regressing in the second half of the season following a strong start. Smith's eye level and pocket movement can be great, but he reverted back to staring down his first read. During his sophomore season, Smith played in an offense where he frequently took snaps from center, so he might have a leg up compared to some other prospects in that regard.

    Geno Smith is represented by Erik Burkhardt and Jeff Nalley of Select Sports Group. Perhaps Schefter is getting this from them.

    I'm going to go ahead and speculate that the Jets are employing the same method they used on round one to stimulate the tavon trade. Get teams thinking they need to trade up to acquire a position in order to push other picks down. I know it's a stretch, but let's say you reeeally wanted Cyprien for example, but you didn't want to trade up for him. Next best thing is getting teams to trade ahead of you for a position you aren't going to take, in hopes of pushing Cyprien down.

    One can hope.

    Geno's leadership deficiencies make Sanchez look like General Patton. Pass.

    1. This is Shefter saying this, not Cimini.

    2. This would be outright shocking, because it would leave the Jets with few draft picks (they would probably have to trade a 4th + 6th to move up. This screams of either the Jets smokescreen, Geno Smith's making noise, or another team smokescreen and using the Jets... Or just the Jets doing some due diligence.

    I think the Jets should just let the chips fall or trade down. Trading awake more picks to move up seems like a terrible idea. Especially because next year should be a very good QB year (even after Bridgewater and Manziel)

    yet if they trade up and get him and he's good, we have a qb.

    My gut feeling is that it's a smokescreen. However, Idzik may be thinking back to last year when he was in Seattle when they drafted Russell Wilson in the middle rounds and he turned out to be a star.

    People talk about fixing the offense. The one sure way of fixing the offense is to get a new signal caller.

    Schefter right now on ESPN radio says he believes Geno will be a Jet tonight.. Says Eagles are the only other team who would take him but his gut feeling says they won't .. And we had a serious debate about him at 13 so it would make sense if we took him at 39.

    I'm not thrilled with the idea, but I guess I can live with the Jets drafting him. I'd be quite annoyed if the Jets traded up.

    There's no guarantee we'd get one of the top QBs next year. There's also no guarantee that the guys perceived to be the top 2014 QBs will still be so perceived in 12 months. Things happen, players drop, get injured or run into off field issues.

    If the Jets like a QB and think he's worth a 2nd round pick, then go get him now.

    A QB in the hand is better than 2 in the 2014 bush.

    Depends on what it costs and how high we have to go.

    Agreed. Not my ideal move but if we gave him a first round grade and loved him at 13 I can understand why they would .. Good value pick

    So?

    Jay Cutler is a surly loser and he's been reasonably successful in the NFL.

    Heard it..Also heard Shefter said Geno was one of the 4....While Manish said it was Chance Warmack (both said Tavon Austin)...


    Yikes...

    Summary: Started the season red-hot with the help of two playmaking receivers and created a national stir generating a lot of overexcitement in the scouting community. Quickly came down to earth after Kansas State disguised coverages and brought pressure he could not handle and he finished dropping six of his final eight games. A cross between Akili Smith and Aaron Brooks, Smith is a gimmick, overhyped product of the system lacking the football savvy, work habits and focus to cement a starting job and could drain energy from a QB room. Will be overdrafted and struggle to produce against NFL defensive complexities.
    NFL projection: Top-50 pick.
