Jets Rumors: Jets Looking to Move Up for Geno Smith?

Mike Ehrmann

Adam Schefter says the Jets are working the phone to try and move up, presumably for West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith who fell out of the first round last night.

As always, it would depend on the terms of a trade. As long as the compensation is not too bad, Geno in the second round is a lot less of a risk than Geno in the first round. If you invest something as valuable as a high first round pick in a quarterback, you are committing to him for a long time. Not so much with a second round pick.

I had too many concerns about his college system and performance against good competition to feel good about a first round pick. In the second round, his accuracy, mobility, and decision making intrigue me a lot. There is a lot of good to build upon.
