Geno Smith Selected By The New York Jets In The 2013 NFL Draft


West Virginia QB Geno Smith has been selected by the New York Jets in the 2013 NFL Draft. From the moment the 2012 season ended, Kansas City Chiefs began debating whether or not their team should should select Geno Smith with the No. 1 overall pick.

Some fans argued that Smith was more than worth the top selection while other questioned his abilities. In the end, NFL GMs sided with the doubters and Smith slid all the way into the second round. In fact, though most considered Smith the top prospect, it was Florida State’s E.J. Manuel that went in the first round, to the Buffalo Bills.

Geno Smith was finally selected with the 39th overall pick. He will join the QB circus in New York, that now includes former first round picks Mark Sanchez and the always controversial Tim Tebow. It will be interesting to see how Geno Smith performs in the NFL, especially under the gaze of the harsh New York media.

Though the Chiefs didn’t end up taking Geno Smith, I think KC fans will follow his career closely. If he is a star, Chiefs fans will havre to lament what might of been. If Geno is a bust and Alex Smith leads the Chiefs to a Super Bowl, the Chiefs faithful will look back on the 2013 offseason as a work of art by GM John Dorsey and Andy Reid.

How do you think it will turn out?

    Picaso in the making! No doubt Geno drew the short straw in this one. Coaching makes a huge difference and he will not go nearly as far without Reid as his coach. Combine this with the volitile NY market and his chances of success are very small.

    I think this just goes to show you that all those arguments I got into proved I am obviously more informed than the dopey bloggers working on this site from their mother’s basement. The Jets decided they needed MORE QB controversy, not less. They’re the only people more dopey than the writers on Arrowhead Addict.

      Shut up

      Here’s your lousy toll, troll.

  • ArrowFan

    There will be a new coach for the jets next year. And possibly three FA QB’s as well.
