Scouting Report
No collegiate quarterback had a better start in 2012 than Geno Smith, but he couldn't sustain his stellar production and was part of a disappointing finish for West Virginia. However, given the dearth of talented quarterbacks, Smith likely will still be selected early in this year's draft. He heads to the NFL after throwing for a school-record 11,658 yards and 98 touchdowns in his four seasons in Morgantown. He surpassed 4,000 yards in each of his final two campaigns and was first among FBS quarterbacks with 42 touchdown passes in 2012. While leading the Mountaineers to a 5-0 start, Smith completed 81.4 percent of his passes for 1,996 yards and 24 touchdowns with no interceptions. He set school records with 656 yards and eight TDs in a 70-63 win over Baylor on Sept. 29 while connecting on 45 of 51 throws. That put him among the front-runners for the Heisman Trophy, but those hopes faded as West Virginia lost six of its final eight games. Smith was 203 of 314 (64.6 percent) for 2,209 yards, 18 TDs and six interceptions over that stretch but did have a phenomenal performance against Kansas, completing 23 of 24 passes for 407 yards and three touchdowns. He turned down an invitation to the Senior Bowl, but took part in the NFL combine and might have helped his draft stock by leading all quarterbacks in the 40 (4.59 seconds). He was also among the best his position in the broad jump (10 feet, 4 inches) and vertical jump (33.5 inches). Smith had a strong showing in his pro day on March 14, completing 60 of 64 throws with two that were dropped.
