  Geno Smith is going to be one of the most talked about players at this weekend’s NFL Combine. As the person many believe is the best player at the most important position on a football field, Smith will be closely watched. Every run, every drill, every answer and every throw will be broken down and evaluated. The analysis on Smith will change over the next few days.

  As we did with Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey, we collected tweets from various people who cover the Draft about Geno Smith. Will he leave Indianapolis as the favorite to get selected by the Kansas City Chiefs with the first overall pick? We feel this first tweet is a good way to start.

Daniel Jeremiah is an analyst for the NFL Network and You can find him as @Movethesticks on Twitter.

Doug Baldwin is a wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks and a teammate of Bruce Irvin. Baldwin is a Stanford graduate.

Matt Miller is the NFL and Lead Draft writer for Bleacher Report.

Bucky Brooks of recently compared Geno Smith to St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford:

“Smith has been described as a ‘ho-hum’ quarterback prospect in some circles, but I see a polished pocket passer with outstanding arm talent and passing skills,” Brooks wrote. “(He) displays the capacity to throw the ball accurately to every area of the field with zip, velocity and touch. Additionally, he flashes anticipation and awareness by leading receivers into open areas against tight coverage.”

Greg Cosell of NFL Films had this to offer on Smith:

“The ball comes out with good velocity, it comes out with good juice, and the short to intermediate throws are very good,” Cosell said.
