Geno Smith "slow eyes"




I recently wrote an article you can find here. In this article I said that Geno,among other things, wasn't very good at anticipation or throwing guys open. A lot of people disagreed with me, which is perfectly fine, but some went as far as to question if I was being biased or just making stuff up. Greg Cosell in an interview with NFL Network which you can find,here, says a lot of the same things about Geno as I do. This isn't to say that I'm write or wrong, just that someone who has been scouting and looking at tape for a very long time agrees with me. He also goes on to say he isn't sure if Geno Smith, or any QB this year, is on a Ryan Tannehill level, which I also happen to agree with. I will say that I believe Smith has the highest ceiling of any QB in the draft this year.

Arm strength is one of the attributes Geno Smith has an advantage in over Nassib, Barkley and Wilson. This isn't me being snide but having a true question. Just like any other form of strength, can't arm strength be improved? Tom Brady, Joe Montana and Drew Brees all had their arm strength questioned coming out of college. Yet, when I watch Brady and Brees they no longer seem to have weak arms. My assumption,which could be completely wrong, is that arm strength is created out of a combination of muscular strength, arm length and technique. Two of those things can be improved. I'm not saying that Kellen Moore can transform into Jay Cutler or Matthew Stafford. It seems reasonable though that Nassib and Barkley could improve their arm strength enough for it to not be a problem. If you have any information on this please comment and inform! It would be greatly appreciated.
