Inside The Bills

Mr. Smith goes to Indianapolis

He elected not to attend the Senior Bowl last month, but West Virginia QB Geno Smith has made his mark on the NFL Scouting in Indianapolis. Going into the combine, Smith was rated as the best quarterback in the class by many. And he did nothing to dispel that notion during the Sunday afternoon workouts.

Smith has a cannon for an arm and he put it on display in the workouts with the wide receivers. On his short throws, he seemed to lack some touch, but he was far and away the best QB on the field Sunday. And Smith shined in the earlier QB workouts, with the best time in the 40-yard dash among the quarterback group (4.59). Nevertheless, he’s not really considered a “running” QB. With his stature (6-2, 218 pounds) and his arm strength, Smith could probably play the role of a traditional pocket passer very effectively.

He reportedly was one of the QBs the Bills met with this weekend at the Combine. And he’s likely to merit serious consideration for the Bills and every other team in need of a QB upgrade this year.
