West Virginia's Geno Smith held his pro day on March 14th. Most notably of those in attendance were the very top of the brass for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Although skeptics may believe that this could be an elaborate smokescreen, sending your general manager, head coach, offensive coordinator and senior vice president to a workout isn't exactly a simple task.
Jacksonville seemingly sending over its entire contingent probably means that there is real interest there. And after exceeding the Jaguars' expectations in these meetings, Smith should be the favorite as the draft's second overall pick.
Smith is the top quarterback prospect of the class. The power is there, the accuracy is there and, perhaps just as importantly, the poise is there. Smith possesses a very gifted arm and, with the right staff, could be molded into a franchise player.
For Jacksonville, a new regime may very well mean a new quarterback. Since nothing on the current roster is clicking, Smith would be a solid investment with this selection.
