Most NFL prospects toot their own horn repeatedly when they meet the media at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. Some are willing to say they’re the best player at their position in the draft class to try to exude confidence. West Virginia QB Geno Smith took a different angle in pointing to his current weaknesses.
“Inconsistency is something I struggle with I believe,” said Smith. “I’ve put up some good statistics, but there were some situations where I could’ve made a better throw and I’ll be the first one to say that, but I think my skill set is one that is tailored for any offense. I’m a very smart guy, I understand defense, I have a good knowledge of the game and I also put the work in necessary to get better. You can watch the tape and see all the throws I can make. Obviously I can make every throw on the field and like I said that can still be improved.”
Smith also said he considers himself a pocket quarterback and doesn’t believe his game is predicated on the read option attack that’s become more popular in the league. He did say he could run it if that’s what his coach wants.
