Many people thought West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith would go at least in the top-ten of tonight’s first round, but he ended up not getting drafted at all.
During Smith’s slide down the first round, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers tweeted some encouraging words for him.
Hang in there Geno, "good things come to those who wait" -Paul Tagliabue

Rodgers knows all about sliding down the first round after being projected to be one of the top picks of the 2005 NFL draft and then falling to the Packers who held the 24th overall pick.
