Biggest Surprise of the Draft

I think the biggest surprise in the 2013 NFL Draft is the Jets taking Geno Smith in the second round. Most of the analyst thought that he would be a top pick. It was a great pick for the Jets, but they were lucky he was still available. He had a great season this year, throwing 42 touchdowns and leading his team to a bowl game. He set 17 Mountaineer records during his college career, including: most touchdowns in a season and most touchdowns scored in a single game. 

Geno has great potential and will be the starting QB for the Jets next year. At the NFL Combine, he ran a 4.59, which is good for a QB. Last year against Baylor, he completed 45 passes, threw for 656 yards and 8 touchdowns, which is a very good game. Smith is only 20 years old, so he should be able to play at a high level in the league for at least 10 years. The Jets like Smith so much that they released a valuable player in Tim Tebow.

Geno Smith is a tall QB at 6'3 and teams want tall QBs. Smith will have a lot of pressure on him because he is in the same division as the Patriots. Jets fans will love having Geno Smith as their team’s QB for years to come.
