Go watch Mark Sanchez or Jimmy Clausen in college if you want to see what real happy feet look like.

Smith is simply keeping his feet under him and squared to his body. Completely different than true "happy feet."
He chops and hops, just like you're supposed to. He keeps those feet firing and flips his hips through to get to his reads.

Smith is young and doesn't always plant that back foot and fire because, well, that's what young quarterbacks do. It takes some time to get the balls to stand in there and deliver instead of fading back and getting popped. In HS, that was always good enough for him. In College it's usually good enough for him. This is what you see from very talented young QBs - they almost brace for that his as they throw because their arms let them get away with it.

In the pros he'll learn and improve in that aspect. It'll burn him on occasion, but I see no reason why he can't get past it. His footwork is otherwise solid.
