Quote:
Several NFL executives who spent "extensive time" with Jets rookie Geno Smith before the draft believe Smith faces significant NFL roadblocks because he's "tuned out" and fails to realize he doesn't know everything.
"I'm not sure he knows how to take instruction because he pretty much wouldn't listen or talk to our coaches," said one exec. "... You can't tell him anything right now. He's tuned out because he thinks he's got it all down." Another NFL exec questioned Smith's leadership. "He doesn't have much presence, not much of a leader. I don't think he's a bad person, but that's not enough to be a quarterback in this league." Per Yahoo's Jason Cole, Smith spent "much of his time on his cell phone" during pre-draft visits. "All these other players were talking to coaches, trying to get to know people and he was over there by himself," one source said. "That's not what you want out of your quarterback."

I never thought he was that good. I had him mocked high, but only because I listened to everyone who told me that he should be taken in the top ten.

He should fit right in with the Jests QBs and have a future without the letter W associated with it

Thats one of the reasons why I gave our draft an A while giving all the other teams an F.

The jets just might have the #1 pick in next years draft.

I thought he was talented, but no wonder he fell like an anchor during the draft. I wouldn't have drafted him either if he didn't take instruction and spent most of the time on the cell phone. Players like that do not last long in the NFL.

And hopefully they find another Vernon Ghouston or Mark Sanchez with that pick

Actually, the thought of Jadevon Clowney in a Jets uniform is frightening.

Between his immaturity and the turmoil in that locker room I just dont see him being successfull.

As far as I see it only chance he or Sancheese gets on the field is if Garrard cant stay healthy...
