The Kansas City Chiefs may not draft QB Geno Smith but they were in attendance at his Pro Day (along with most of the rest of the NFL) last week.
Smith’s stock seemed to get a bit of a boost from his workout. NFL Network draft analyst, Mike Mayock, who hadn’t been especially high on Smith previously, came away from the workout calling Smith a “top ten talent.”
Smith’s workout was closed to the media but a Youtube video has surfaced of the Pro Day. You can see a number of NFL scouts all watching behind Smith. If you look closely, you will also be able to spot Mayock and former Kansas City Chiefs QB Ron Jaworski.
Smith looks comfortable going through his scripted throwing session. There are a couple of drops by the receivers but only one glaringly bad throw from the QB. Most of Smith’s passes are on target and hit the receivers in stride.
The Pro Day is just one small piece to the puzzle when determining a prospect’s draft stick. NFL teams like to say they trust what they see on tape but a player can still turn heads with individual workouts.
What do you think of Smith’s Pro Day?
