-Always locks onto his 1st read. Goes through progressions like 25% of the time.

Finds second or third options across the field if first read is covered. - NFL.com

-Has trouble understanding how the defense is doing to counteract his offense and their blitz packages, especially good one's.

He has earned a reputation as a very hard worker and true student of the game who puts in a ton of time in the film room. - Walter Football
Quote:
-Most of his passing yards are due to Bailey and Austin's YAC.

Fires throws into tight windows over the middle while also leading receivers open on the sideline and showing touch on fades into the end zone.- NFL.com

-Rarely looks off defenders and makes it easy for defenders to know where he is going a lot of the time.
Quote:
The senior signal-caller has an excellent skill set. He is showing his intelligence and field vision by working through his progressions and looking off safeties. - Walter Football

-Hasn't shown the "it" factor.

2) Poise: Great quarterbacks are unflappable in moments of stress, and Smith clearly handled himself well. He took a beating at the hands of the Longhorns' defensive line, but his game in the pocket never changed. Smith consistently delivered accurate throws to his intended receivers, despite having rushers in close proximity. He refused to wilt under the pressure of constant harassment, and his courage under fire helped West Virginia make several critical conversions with the game on the line. Smith tossed three lasers to Stedman Bailey on slants for scores, despite having defenders in his face each time he released the ball; on each toss, he stood in and took the shot while making an accurate throw. Most quarterbacks alter their release point or delivery with contact on the horizon, but Smith's ability to fire an accurate strike under duress was a testament to his courage and poise. - Bucky Brooks

-When a defense figures out his teams spread offense, he crumbles. Struggles to figure out what to do when he has to make adjustments.
Quote:
Smith has also torched a bunch of really good defenses over his career. He threw for 463 yards and 2 TDs against the nationís best defense (LSU) in 2011, for 407 yards and 6 TDs against Clemson in the Orange Bowl, and 320 yards and 4 TDs against Oklahoma back in November.

-No elite leadership. Team doesn't follow his lead.
Quote:
1) Leadership: I have no concerns about Smith's leadership skills after what I saw Saturday. From the time the Mountaineers entered the field for pregame warmups until the conclusion of the game, Smith showed outstanding leadership qualities. He encouraged his teammates at every turn, refusing to hang his head when he turned the ball over on a pair of strip-sacks. Smith was obviously annoyed by the mistakes, but he didn't appear to wallow in self-pity, responding instead with improved play on the subsequent series. - Bucky Brooks
Thanks for playing. You can grab a door prize on the way out.
