Watch Geno Smith's Pro Day


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?

    Great mechanics. Cleaned up footwork. He’s got a great touch too. I’d say top ten pick, but who knows what those throws would look like with coverage and pressure at the line. Cassel would have looked just as good playing catch.

      I wonder about Cassel. I remember hearing his throws were often ugly in practice as well.

      is that todd haley over geno’s right shoulder?

  • Daniel Mayfield

    I just wish they would have got him along with Alex, not Chase Daniel.

      I’m sure it’s not out of the question to have all three. Unlikely, but not impossible. But yeah, I was a big supporter of having him learn behind Alex til he could take over. Would be kinda cruel considering Alex just went through that lol.

    Chiefcottonmouth hit the nail on the head. This is a scripted session designed to make the QB look good. That is what all of these Pro Days are for. Put some pressure on the kid and have him throwing against DRC, Cason, Bailey or any of the other DB’s in our division and he will get picked apart. Time will tell I guess.

    I did not see what I was expecting to see. The crossing routes early on the receivers looked like they were jogging through the route, and on several of the deep balls the receivers had to slow down to catch the ball. Again, not all what I expected to see.

    Everyone who says this man is not great is right, he’ not great right now. No one is saying this guy is comparable to Luck or RGlll no one, but what most experts are saying is that Geno has the talent, he has the knowledge and most of all he has the work ethic to “become” great in the NFL and all he needs is a great coach to guide him to that level, Who better then hmmmmm let me think here for a second, who is a quarterback guru ummm gee i don’t know maybe ANDY FU@#ING REID. If anyone can make this kid great it’s our coach, because if he goes to the Raiders the Cardinals or the Bills and does above average, I’m gonna be furious, because all of us would have known how great our coaches could have made him. But instead we have a bandaid QB for a few years who will be good and maybe a post season appearance or two but never anything special just another boring retread check down QB! YAY can’t wait!

    I like his mechanics on rhythm throws 3, 5 and 7 step look good but play action or making a pass that is 2nd or 3rd progression looks sloppy. That being said, looks very coach able and capable.
