"I couldn't even pound the table today for a first-round quarterback, let alone a (No. 1) pick quarterback. I watched a bunch of Geno Smith and he can make every throw. He's athletic. The ball jumps out of his hand. But there's a lot of things that make me nervous about him. He misses people by wide margins for no reason. I see a little bit of hesitancy with the blitz. When that first read is not there, it's not as pretty on the second or third read. His eyes come down. He makes mistakes." Feb 14 - 12:49 PM
"he misses people by a wide margin" - One of the highest completion percentages to all levels of all the QBs in this draft or the last.
"He hesitates with the blitz" - took only 19 sacks behind one of the shittiest O-lines in the Big 12.
"He makes mistakes" - by throwing only 6 interceptions in 518 attempts.
