Brad Smith never got a shot at QB in the NFL as a starter
Brad Smith was an all everything in his collegiate career at Missouri.
- A four-year starter
- The second player ever to rush for 1,000 yards and throw for 2,000 yards in a season and the first to do this twice,
- The first player in NCAA history to throw for 8,000 yards and rush for 4,000 yards in a career
- Took Missouri to its first bowl since 1998 in 2003
- A junior season preseason Heisman candidate
This guy was a very successful player on a team that was just starting to rise when he was attending.
Drafted 103rd overall by the Jets, Smith has never had the opportunity to win the starting QB job, despite these impressive stats and leading a 10-point comeback as a rookie in the preseason.
Instead, he has become the Wildcat offense QB, the kick returner, WR and trick-play QB for the Jets as a spark plug to the offense.
Smith stands 6'1" and weighs 218 lbs.
