I think that could be a prime reason why Barkley could pass him up. Barkley has proven he has a strong arm. Geno is gonna have to prove to GM's in February that he is smart, because he was exposed in that aspect against Tech and KSU.
Coaching, coaching, coaching.
Geno Smith will do just fine in football IQ. You know how Russell Wilson impressed the pants off everybody in Jon Gruden's QB Camp special last year? Geno is capable of doing the exact same thing. Rattling off coverages and protections like it was yesterday's lunch menu. He's played in two different offensive systems, both of them which require him to make defensive reads like any pro style QB would.
It's Dana Holgorson who should have to prove to GMs in February that he's smart. HE was the tard responsible for the mess against TT and KSU
