It's also about the fact players are likely to take an up and down line towards their peak, whatever that may be. Most are not going to take a straight line ascending up. Luck did that, and because of that a lot of people think any player without the straight line means they aren't worth taking early.
The difficulty is deciding which players will end up high on the scale once their line levels off. I don't think using Geno's "outbursts" are a smart way of going. I don't think Rivers is a parallel player emotionally. Too much speculating to sit here and talk about Geno's attitude, especially when interviews seem to keep the other side of the scale pretty heavy.
I have a feeling Wilson is going to come out of the pro days as the higher floor, Geno the higher ceiling.
Phillip Rivers BLAMES other players for his mistakes.
This isn't about outbursts.
Geno Smith got pissed off. He got leg whipped and it wasn't called.
He didn't come to the sideline and dress down his linemen or a WR like Rivers does.
