Second round draft pick is keen to learn from the other Quarterbacks on the roster.
Despite dropping into the second round, Geno Smith said he was happy and delighted to be part of the New York Jets organisation and was ready to compete for the starting job.
The West Virginia signal caller has been brought into the side to give current starter Mark Sanchez a legitimate challenger to his starting position, and general manager John Idzik has sent a clear message to his QB that his position needs to be fought for.
Smith was regarded as a sure first round pick, and maybe even going to Jacksonville at number two overall, however his slide was a dramatic one, and the Jets were able to pick up a steal when he fell all the way to them at number 39 overall.
While Sanchez will be the starter once Training Camp opens in August, when the regular season starts, it may be Smith leading the team out.
