Geno Smith Pro Day: Jaguars meet with QB, impressed by accuracy

Justin K. Aller

The Jacksonville Jaguars sent a large contingent to the West Virginia Pro Day to watch quarterback Geno Smith throw to two receivers that will also be in the NFL Draft. Smith reportedly completed 60 of his 64 pass attempts during his throwing session, with two of the four incompletions being drops by wide receiver Stedman Bailey.

In attendance for the Jaguars were general manager David Caldwell, Senior VP Tony Khan, Director of Player Personnel Terry McDonough, head coach Gus Bradley, and offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch. After Smith's throwing session, Bradley met with Geno Smith and was said to have been impressed with the quarterback's accuracy.

CBS Sports NFL Draft analyst Rob Rang gave some details on Smith's Pro Day:

Most impressive in the workout was his downfield touch and accuracy, zip on the move and balance throughout his compact release.

Smith's college playbook from the "Air Raid" system was mostly horizontal and crossing route dependent. Intermediate accuracy is his greatest strength. What evaluators need to see was whether Smith can throw on the move, maintain his balance and accuracy on rollouts and waggle design, and throw with zip while hitting targets at 25-plus yards and beyond.

It remains to be seen if the Jaguars are going to pull the trigger on a quarterback with the second overall pick, but sending such a large group to Smith's Pro Day would certainly point towards there being some genuine interest in making the selection.
