Why Geno Smith fell in the draft

I've seen a couple other posts about this... but this probably deserves it's own thread considering how many hours we've wasted arguing about the guy. This is the first article I've seen theorizing why Geno fell in the draft. Time will tell whether it's accurate.

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nfl--ge...183846651.html

Quote:
On April 23, Smith, his agents, some family members and several friends gathered for dinner in New York in advance of the draft, a gathering confirmed by a family member. At one point, everyone around the table stood to give a toast to celebrate the evening.

Smith went last, thanking everyone and declaring that entire group his agents included were a "family" that would stay together his entire career, if not the rest of his life, the sources said. Smith, who at one point was expecting to be the No. 1 overall pick and at least a top 10 selection, has big plans for his career. Smith, according to the sources, hopes to emulate players such as Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers, putting himself cut above the rest of the quarterback fray.

The problem is that NFL types see a guy who, right now, doesn't understand how to get there.

"His biggest problem is that he doesn't know what he doesn't know," said a league executive, who spent extensive time assessing Smith before the draft.

"I'm not sure he knows how to take instruction because he pretty much wouldn't listen or talk to our coaches he's talented. He can sling it, he can fit it into tight spots, he can do a lot of things and I think he wants to be good. But you can't tell him anything right now. He's tuned out because he thinks he's got it all down."

---

One possible factor in Smith dropping to the second round is a concern about leadership.

"He doesn't have much presence, not much of a leader," said another league executive, who spent a great deal of time studying Smith before the draft. "I don't think he's a bad person, but that's not enough to be a quarterback in this league."

Two sources indicated that when Smith went on some visits to teams, rather than interact with coaches and front-office people, he would spend much of his time on his cell phone. Instead of being engaged with team officials, he would be texting friends or reading Twitter or a number of other distracting activities.

"All these other players who were in there were talking to the coaches, trying to get to know people and he was over there by himself," one of the sources said. "That's not what you want out of your quarterback."

Both sources indicated that Florida State's E.J. Manuel, who was selected ahead of Smith at No. 16 overall by Buffalo, was far more impressive in terms of his personality and maturity.

"Manuel gets it, he gets the whole big picture of what it takes to lead a team," one of the league executives said.

---

By Sunday, Smith was being convinced by other friends that it was the fault of his agents that he slipped so much in the draft, according to one of the sources.

"Right now, he's blaming everybody but himself and he has some buddies around him who are telling him that same thing," the source said.

Because the diehard VaGeno's on this site know more about NFL Scouting than anyone that actually has a job as a scout or working in an NFL front office. If all 32 teams had actually competent people manning the draft, Geno would have gone 1st, 2nd and 3rd.....with a timeshare agreement setup between the Chiefs, Jaguars and Raiders in advance.

You are so going to choke on your own nuts over Geno Smith.

Its so obvious its only a question of when.

Remember when Leaf kicked ass for like 2 preseason games and people got crazy? I doubt even that happens.

Did 'can do no wrong' Geno graduate from West Virginia? A little research seems that little fact left out unlike all other draftees.

It's absolutely ridiculous.

I wasn't a fan of the Smith trade and I'm still not but damn if this place isn't quickly turning me into a big time fan of his.

I don't think I've ever wanted to see a player do so well, for obvious reasons, and to see the meltdown on here.

That's a pretty overblown comment by The Bad Guy. Weird because he's normally a poster who chooses his words very carefully and rarely resorts to hyperbole.

If Alex actually is the solution to our QB woes, there's no ****ing way there's a meltdown. You might have retards saying "Huhr I told you we'd get one of these QB trades right some day!" but the amount of shit slinging won't even register a measured blip in comparison to what's been going ever since Trent Green got his brains scrambled.
