In the end we are trying to compare who was/is the better prospect.
Is there a single professional, that isn't emotionally attached to the situation, that regards Smith as high of a prospect as RG3?
Geno played behind one of the worst O-lines in college ball, and he avoided pressure with his legs, within and outside of the pocket, and only ran as the very last resort.
RGIII is a very good pocket QB, but he pulls the ball down much quicker and takes off running far sooner than Geno does, even on this level.
