NFL Draft: Geno Smith Continues to Impress at Scouting Combine



West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith has been regarded as the most complete QB in this year’s draft class, and many analysts believe he’ll go in the top-10 of this year’s NFL Draft. He’s done nothing to dissapoint at this weekend’s NFL Scouting Combine,  running a 4.56 in the 40-yard dash, the fastest 40-time of all QBs (we don’t count Denard Robinson and his 4.36):

It’s worth noting that San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick ran a 4.53 at his combine. With the Pistol Offense taking the NFL by storm, this will only boost Smith’s stock, and should keep him a top-10 pick.

It’s also worth noting that ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay ranks Smith as his top QB in the class, even if he didn’t give him  a first-round grade.

Other notable quarterback times in the 40: Florida State’s E.J. Manuel ran a 4.62, Tyler Wilson clocked a 4.94, Landry Jonesran a 5.06, and Ryan Nassib posted a 4.84.
