Bucky Brooks is the worst draft prognosticator in the business, so the fact that he doesn't know what the **** he's talking about with Geno Smith makes me even more confident that Smith will make an excellent franchise QB
West Virginia's Geno Smith is the top quarterback prospect on the majority of draft boards across the league, but that doesn't mean everyone is convinced he's a legitimate top-10 pick. An NFC South personnel executive recently cited Smith's hesitancy against the different looks thrown at him after midseason as a potential red flag. While Smith has maintained an impressive completion percentage (70.1) and a gaudy touchdown-to-interception ratio (35:5), the scout said Smith won't pull the trigger on "tight-window" throws at times for fear of tossing an interception. Unfortunately, those are exactly the types of throws Smith would need to make at the next level to be a great player. In addition, the scout didn't seem convinced that Smith possessed the requisite physical tools to merit consideration as a franchise-type player. While he acknowledged that a team in desperate need of a quarterback would likely view Smith in a different light, he said that the West Virginia star is not in the same class as prior QB prospects Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Cam Newton.
Smith is a bit hesitant on those tight window throws, but he throws (and completes them) all the ****ing time nonetheless. That's something that will get cleared up with coaching. The other part about Smith lacking all the requisite physical tools is just plain ****ing garbage.
Geno Smith has all the stuff you can't teach. The stuff he needs to work on can be fixed with coaching and game experience (and really not all that much to be honest).
