According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Jets are “smitten” over rookie quarterback Geno Smith after this past weekend’s rookie mini camp.
You can tell from talking to people around the team during this weekend’s rookie mini-camp that many in the organization are smitten with new quarterback Geno Smith. It’s beginning to look more and more like the starting job is his to lose.
Smith was impressive during the two days of the mini-camp open to the media. His passes had great zip on them and he looked more decisive as the practices went on as he got more comfortable in the offense. The 22-year-old was even more impressive off the field. He held players’ only meetings at the team hotel to learn the plays and handled the media like a longtime pro.
Even though the Jets like what they see from Smith, the quarterback competition will likely go on through training camp. We all know that a rookie mini camp isn’t enough to judge a player on.
