There are pluses and minuses to working out at the NFL Combine. West Virginia QB prospect Geno Smith experienced those last month, and then the benefits of working out at a pro day. Now with both experiences behind him it’s not contest as to which of them was easier.
“(Pro day) is a lot easier than the Combine,” Smith said after going 62-65 passing in Morgantown Thursday. “For one I wasn’t up for three days straight before doing this. I was able to get some rest and being in Morgantown in a comfortable environment and feeling good. Being with Chris Weinke we’ve been working and I was able to get into a better rhythm. At the Combine you only get 10 or 15 throws. To be able to get about 60 to 70 throws out here was a lot different and I think it really helped me out a lot.”
Weinke, a former NFL quarterback, has been working with Smith as his quarterback coach since the college season ended.
