Smith, once projected as a top-10 prize by many insiders, was chosen with the 39th pick out of West Virginia University by the Jets last month.
“I don’t worry about what people say — my skin is pretty thick,” said Smith, 22, a 2011 First Team All-Big East and 2012 Second Team All-Big 12 selection. “I’ve never been in trouble.”
The 6-foot-2, 218 pound Smith was further grilled for clipping his agents after falling like an intern in the Oval Office.
“No, that’s not why I let them go,” said Smith, who tossed 98 touchdowns, against 21 interceptions, for 11,662 yards in 44 games at WVU.
It’s difficult to respect anyone that refuses to place their name next to a quote.
Hence, Smith’s shadowy insulters can’t be trusted or honored.
In relation to production on the gridiron, the greatest quality a signal caller can possess is accuracy and Smith completed an extremely impressive 67.4 percent of his throws as a three-year starter for West Virginia.
Watching film and past interviews, nothing indicates the former Mountaineer can’t fly as a Jet in the swamps of Jersey.
Either way, Smith can’t “worry about what people say.”
With “pretty thick skin,” Geno Smith needs to strictly focus on becoming the best New York Jets employee possible.
