Okay...I commend your monumental trolling effort.
However, if I could, allow me to retort...
In a nutshell:
Geno was a Parade All-American at QB in High School.
He was a three year starter in college.
He started in two different systems, one being a pure "pro-style" set (his sophomore year), the other being a multi-receiver/read shotgun set that utilizes a lot of pro level routes and options.
He's incredibly accurate.
He's got a damn near perfect release/passing motion that is exceptionally quick.
He can make every throw in the book and puts the correct velocity on those throws.
He's got amazing pocket awareness and keeps his eyes downfield all times in an effort to find an open receiver.
He's got ideal size.
And I could go on ad nausem with details about why he's an elite level prospect for the position.
However, to sum it up, he's got as many tools at the position as I've ever seen in a QB at that level and his upside is tremendous. His floor is also exceptionally high as he's got a ton of experience at the position and a boat load of reps in the passing game.
He's as good a prospect at the QB position as you will ever find.
If you want to pass that up for any other position, you are a complete and utter retard.
