2013 NFL Draft Player Prospect Profile: Geno Smith
When it comes to the top quarterbacks in the 2013 NFL Draft, West Virginia‘s Geno Smith may be the best in this year’s class as he’s received plenty of praise over the last couple of weeks for his work ethic and impressive workouts.
There was a reason why Smith was in consideration for the Heisman last year and there’s no question he is arguably the best quarterback from this year’s draft class as he seems to be right up there with Matt Barkley of USC. Smith is a quarterback capable of running the ball along with making plays outside the pocket and while he has numerous areas in need of improvement, Smith has been praised for his arm strength as well. On top of his arm strength, Smith’s accuracy seems to get better and better each season–which gives him high expectations for playing at the NFL level.
Even if Smith has received plenty of criticism already, keep in mind this is exactly what happened with Cam Newton two years ago when he was selected as the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft–and look how he’s turned out over the last two seasons. There were numerous teams in need of help at the quarterback position and Smith has proven to have all of the mechanics needed to be the type of quarterback to build a franchise around in the NFL–especially if he can manage to start right away as a rookie during the 2013 season.
