    I haven't watched this kid much. QB West Virginia.

    #1 is he coming out this year?
    #2 if so, where is he slated to go?

    Just saw a highlight of him. Seems to have good size, and looks like a passer. Anyone who goes 23-24 must have some accuracy.

    Ok, answered my own questions. Senior, coming out this year, one of the top rated prospects.

    Where do you guys slot him among available QB's?

    I'm not that high on any of these Qb's right now.

    Geno will probably go to KC and I think Geno or Tyler Wilson will end up the best of the class IMO.

    He was hot as the epicenter of an atomic bomb at the beginning of the year but his press has cooled along with his team's fortunes. He is very good, perhaps a little hyped at season's start but now he is under the radar a bit, because he's a special player.

    He's at least as good as Matt Barkley and Landry Jones, and a much better deep ball.

    He's OK but not the elite prospect that Luck or RG3 were last year. Better than Tannehill and Weeden though. He'll probably go anywhere from 10-25 depending on how Barkley and Wilson work out too

    10-25? He'll go top 5 for sure.

    Besides both being African-American QB's. They have very few similarities.
    Quincy's best year was his Sophomore year- 2713 yards passing 17 tds-6ints and rushed for 255 yards.
    Geno Smith this year threw for 3597 yards 37 tds and 5 ints.

    Geno isn't a drug addict, and is a much better football player. I really don't get that comparison.

    I'd say that's about fair. however he's not likely to drop below 5 or so.

    Wherever he goes, the Cowboys don't need him. THey draft a WB this year at all. We have way more pressing needs and all our picks should be in Oline, Dline, Safety, and RB.

    I don't want another Q Card, either. Which QB is comparable to him? I know Geno Smith isn't.

    Good version of Randall Cunningham

    You think Geno Smith is a good version of Randall Cunningham? I don't see that. Smith isn't a runner. He gained 346 rushing yards during his 4 year career at WVU. Smith is a pocket passer. I think he is a taller Drew Brees.

    Smith can run just chooses to stay in the pocket, but as far as an NFL comparison adding in size, arm strength, & athleticism he reminds me of Randall Cunningham.

    Maybe it's a testament to the lack of historic racial diversity at the quarterback position but I notice an alarming trend of people automatically comparing black quarterbacks to other black quarterbacks even when the skill set similarities are noncompliant. Be more thoughtful with your words people, please.

    Don't look at a quarterback's skin tone when assessing them, make genuine comparisons and Not appearance based ones
