Geno Smith detractor at practice today Dan Leberfeld

The NFL Network’s Mike Mayock was in Florham Park today to attend Jets practice.

After the Jets picked Geno Smith, Mayock said he “wouldn’t hand Geno the keys immediately.”

Before the draft, Mayock said on an NFL.com podcast, “I watched a bunch of Geno Smith and he can make every throw. He’s athletic. The ball jumps out of his hand. But there’s a lot of things that make me nervous about him. He misses people by wide margins for no reason. I see a little bit of hesitancy with the blitz. When that first read is not there, it’s not as pretty on the second or third read. His eyes come down. He makes mistakes.”
