Geno Smith vs Oklahoma (2012)

Does not lead receiver enough almost leads to interception.
Stares down target and is picked off.
Shows good zip on out route, throws it on a line.
Good Ball Placement allows receiver to get YAC.
Throws high and inside on comeback route
Throws off backfoot and misses comeback route
Shows tremendous ball placement to beat man coverage
Rushes throw and throws it far too high.
Runs backwards to avoid sack, not going to fly in the NFL, later makes smart choice to throw ball away.
Throws two great deep ball, one off back foot, but great trajectory and perfect ball placement
Floats throw from opposite hash, throws it inside and without velocity, knocked up and then picked off.
Deep ball too far inside
Shows ability to throw on run, squares shoulder and throws accurately with good zip.
Drops back, reads whole field on multiple progressions, evades sack and turns it into 5 yards on the ground.
Leaves deep fade too far inside, should have been intercepted.
Makes amazing throw from own endzone, stands tall in pocket, takes a hit and delivers a perfect throw to beat bracket coverage.
Turns an unblocked blitz into big yards on the ground. Has a lot of running ability.
Perfect placement on out route on 2 point conversion.
Great ball placement on a back corner fade from the opposite hash.
Another great deep ball for a TD, is thrown off his back foot due to pressure.
Evades sack and has presense of mind to get out of bounds to stop the clock, looks like a good runner.

Geno Smith vs Iowa State 2012

First pass of game, has big play that he overthrows just a bit. However shows off his arm, just a flick of the wrist and the ball pops out of his hand. Spins a nice football.
Makes multiple reads, stays in pocket that is collapsing, looks comfortable. Takes off and gets good yards with his legs.
Throws a terrible ball on a WR screen, might have slipped out.
Stands tall in pocket fires a rocket across the middle that is dropped
Making a lot of quick hitter, one read short throws today. (Slants, screens, outs)
Leaves throw too far inside on a deep cross and allows ball to be knocked away. That is an interception on Sundays.
Makes good full field reads, starts left and then throws across the field on the 10 yard out route from the opposite hash into a stiff wind. No questions over the arm with Geno.
Drops the ball in perfectly over two defenders on a corner route. Tremendous throw.

Geno Smith vs Kansas State 2012

Stands in the pocket and throws a rocket on a inside breaking route against man coverage before the safety can clamp down. Nice throw.
Holding the ball too low in the pocket. Does not feel the pressure and allows the ball to be knock out of his hands.
Makes nice left to right read and then throws a strike to his receiver who drops it.
Throws on the money against man coverage on an inside breaking route to Austin.
Shows willingness to stay in the pocket as long as possible to make something happen, and can still make a play with his legs if needed.
Stands tall and is willing to take a hit to get the throw off.
Stares down one side of the field and then takes checkdown on 3rd down.
Throws behind his receiver down the seam, might have had his arm hit during follow through.
Does not see underneath defender on an outside route. Tipped up and intercepted. Was enough mustard on the ball and not placed terribly, just missed the underneath defender.
Makes an accurate throw to the backside while on the move. Not mechanically sound, but got the job done.
Squeezes the ball into a tight window between defenders. Nice stick throw, plenty of zip on the football.
Throws a fastball on a comeback route, place perfectly between his receiver and the sideline.
Poorly thrown ball on a corner route. Not enough air on it, poorly placed, ends in an interception.
Throws a comeback route from the far hash, poorly placed too far inside, defender knocks it away.
Shows good zip and placement on an out route from the near hash.
Stands in the pocket and makes multiple reads. Poor throw.

Two questions from what you saw in these 3 games.

1. How would you grade Smith on quick release? Good, bad, ugly?

2. I thought from the games I'd seen that Smith seemed to always be keeping his eyes down the field and that he never left the pocket and became a runner until the last possible second. Does that jive with you?

1 - Somewhere in the middle. It is not great, but it is not going to hurt him

2 - He always stays in the pocket as long as possible. He only leaves if forced to or if he exhausts throwing options

3 - Bonus, guy who stood out to me in all three games, Stedman Bailey. Fast, good route runner, Hands Catcher.
