With the 39th pick in the draft, the New York Jets select…

Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia Mountaineers (6-3, 220 pounds)

The Jets make their team perhaps the biggest circus in the NFL by drafting quarterback Geno Smith. Now with Smith, Sanchez and Tebow on the roster, New York has three quarterbacks who will command media attention. Geno will need to greatly improve his footwork and release in order to become an accurate passer, which is vital if he is ever going to be a quality starting quarterback in the NFL.
