Note these videos cover both the good and the bad, not the "highlights" if you will.
See if you can accept this statement:
Jackson could very well be our starter this year.
The more gametape I watch on these prospects, the more lukewarm I get about them. Here's my brief takes on underdog matchups for Smith, Wilson, and Nassib.
Geno Smith vs Kansas State (2012) (via Eric Stoner) Smith vs K-State. Did not hit a big pass all game, two ugly picks, and generally looked uncomfortable out there. Would I take a flier in the 2nd, or even trade back from 8 into the 20s and draft him? Sure. Does he look like a top 10 pick? No.
Wilson against South Carolina. Makes a few big throws, but misses routine ones, and takes too long on others.
Ryan Nassib vs Missouri (2012) (via Aaron Aloysius)
Ryan Nassib vs Louisville 2012 (via JmpasqDraftjedi) Nassib makes actually makes big throws in both games. I particularly like his 3rd down conversions and ability to score when needed. I feel like he'll go before our 2nd round pick, which puts us in somewhat of a quandry.
Our failure to grab a Kirk Cousins or Wilson last year IMO may have set us back a year. Unfortunately, the best path to the SB may be to continue to build and develop talent in '13, and start our run in '14.
