2013 NFL Draft: Geno Smith impresses Jaguars HC Gus Bradley

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars attended the West Virginia Pro Day last week en masse, looking like the team was very interested in quarterback Geno Smith, potentially with the second overall pick in the draft. Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley met with Smith for quite a while and came away impressed with what he saw.

"For me, I sat down one on one with him and I just wanted to see how he would be once he entered our building. Are people going to gravitate toward him? Is he going to be a leader? Is he going to be a guy that everybody backs and will he allow that happen? I wanted to see his competitiveness," Bradley told Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

"How competitive was he? Is he going to come into the building and will it be a deal where it's his team and somebody has to take it away. We had a great talk," Bradley continued. "I was very impressed with after him. I had high expectations but I think I came out there feeling even better."

There is some speculation that the Jaguars could be trying to lure someone to trade up, but it also appears there may be legitimate interest in the quarterback.
