NOT THE ANSWER: Teams looking to answer their QB question aren't going to find one in the 2013 draft

1) Geno Smith, West Virginia
Smith faltered down the stretch against the tougher defenses of the Big 12; scouts started to have concerns about his ability to find his secondary options in the route progression when opponents take away his primary receiver with blanket coverage. He struggled to consistently identify the open receiver in games against Oklahoma, Kansas State and Texas Tech, a trend that continued in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl against Syracuse. Although Smith completed 66.7 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and zero interceptions, he was sacked three times and repeatedly looked confused when the Orange took away his No. 1 option. As a result, Syracuse blew out West Virginia, 38-14.
Pro comparison: Jason Campbell
That's laughable. Geno might not work out in the NFL but he's nothing like Jason Campbell.
