Remember When Geno Smith was a "Top 5 Lock?" Who Knows Where He'll Be Drafted Now

genoq-1Remember that headline? Crazy stuff. It was from April 3. It came two days after Smith was savaged in Pro Football Weekly.

Quarterbacks are always pegged to go high in the draft, which is why Matt Barkley was considered a top pick before the last college football season. Barkley, behind a leaky offensive line, looked mediocre early and Smith in a high octane offense, rapidly flew up the charts.

But Smith’s been in a free fall since January – I foolishly still had him 7th in my mock draft at the end of February – and Thursday he fell completely out of the first round.

Potential landing sports for Smith tonight in Round 2:

Jacksonville at 33
Arizona at 38
New York Jets at 39 (Please, no!!!!!!)
Oakland Raiders at 42

If he falls past Oakland at 42, it could be a long night for Geno Smith, unless a team is drafting him to definitely be the backup.
