Geno will probably struggle as a rookie. Maybe even the first two seasons. He really struggled against good defenses this year for the most part. But nothing to really lose for KC. They have to go after a franchise QB and the draft is still a better shot at that, then Alex Smith and other retreads.
It's only really a matter of whether Tyler Wilson or Geno Smith is the better option.
I think they are easily better than Tannehill. Maybe because I wasn't a fan of his. After watching Tannehill blow multiple 2nd half leads in college I just didn't think he had it.
Funny thing about Geno is he had 12 TD's, 5 INT's, a 60% completion percentage and about 300 yards average against the 5 top 50 defenses he played this seaosn(OU, KSU, TTU, TCU, Maryland).
We'll find out more about what they can do next month at the Senior Bowl and in February at the combine.
