New York Jets Will Work Out Geno Smith


West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith will be coming to Florham Park this week per Conor Orr.

The Jets will host West Virginia QB Geno Smith on Wednesday and Thursday, a person familiar with the situation confirmed.

Smith is the consensus top rated quarterback in the Draft and the only sure thing to go in the first round. It seems very unlikely he would fall all the way to the Jets with the 9th pick. Of the teams picking in front of the Jets, only the Chiefs and the Lions feel they have their long term quarterback on the roster. If the Jets want Geno, they are probably going to have to trade up.

Unless the Jets totally love Geno and think he is the only option at quarterback, it seems like a strong possibility he will end up elsewhere. Maybe this workout will make them think he is their guy, though. We will have to wait and see.
