I am on-board with Geno Smith. Here's why...

1) The physical tools are all there. I think his arm strength is good enough to make the throws he will need to in the NFL.
2) He already understands touch and excels at fitting second-level throws into tight windows. Much easier to learn when and how to drill it than for a game with a cannon to learn how to throw with touch (Blaine Gabbert is a great example of this).
3) It's time. No, he isn't Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III (though he is viewed about like RG3 was until the combine last year). But he is a great QB candidate and someone who will build excitement, at least. Yes, it might not work. But years of drafting "known quantities" with high picks has failed. Time to try something different.
