I'm a Geno fan. I was hoping he'd finish strong and justify the pick. I'll root for the kid wherever he lands, but he's a reach and so was bradford. leaf is just a dumb shit.
the point is any of them is not just an automatic NFL star, they all need to work hard to even get going in the NFL. I liked braford, especially his final season was convincing. but it just isn't that simple.
At the time, Bradford was not considered a reach. He was thought of as the best QB available and in college, he demonstrated outstanding accuracy. The main concern with him was his build/ propensity for injuries, and so far in the NFL, those concerns have been validated.
Also, unlike others, im not ready to call Bradford a bust yet. He made some decent improvements last season and appears to still be ascending.
