2013 NFL Mock Draft: Geno Smith to the Jaguars

The Jaguars pick up a quarterback in the latest mock draft.

Mike Ehrmann

The Jacksonville Jaguars sent a large group to the West Virginia Pro Day to watch Geno Smith do his throwing session. They also met with him for 90 minutes afterwards, breaking down film and meeting with him. The current staff has no ties to the 23-year old Blaine Gabbert who was picked in the Top 10 in 2011, so it's possible the new staff might just move on with their own guy.

In their latest NFL Mock Draft, Mocking The Draft thinks that could be the case:

Pick Player Position Height Weight Class
2. Jacksonville Jaguars
Geno Smith, West Virginia QB 6'2 3/8 218 Sr.

The Jaguars sent the full court press on West Virginia's pro day last week, presumably to see Geno Smith. Coach Gus Bradley, general manager David Caldwell, offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch and three prominent front office members all made the trip to see the quarterback in person. That's either an elaborate smoke screen or the Jaguars have serious interest in Smith. Given that quarterback is the biggest need on Jacksonville's roster, Smith would make a ton of sense. He's the sure fire top quarterback in this class and has the skill set to be a franchise guy.
