Matt Ryan and Geno Smith are entirely different QBs with different backgrounds and different strengths.
Matt Ryan had all the squeaky clean white boy QB shit going for him that draft guys love. He just threw a ton of picks in college. A LOT.
Geno Smith had 6 INTs the whole year and like what, only two fumbles? Three?
In terms of a guy with the arm who can also take care of the ball, Geno Smith is a far better prospect coming out of college than Matt Ryan.
