During television coverage of the NFL Combine Sunday while on the NFL Network set, top quarterback prospect Geno Smith confirmed that he’s met with the Buffalo Bills over the past few days.
Smith told broadcaster Chris Rose that he’s met with 11 teams so far, also specifically mentioning the Steelers, Rams, Bengals, Chiefs and Cardinals.
Smith is regarded by most as the top quarterback prospect in the draft. He could go as high as first overall to Kansas City and almost certain to be a top 10 pick, with Oakland, Arizona and Buffalo all among teams in the top 10 who could be looking at quarterback early.
Smith threw for 4,205 yards, 42 touchdowns and just six interceptions at West Virigina last season. He was once thought of as a sure-fire first quarterback taken in this draft, but struggled a little bit down the stretch and didn’t look good at all against Syracuse in a Pinstripe Bowl loss.
He’s regained some of his hype of late and performed well Sunday at the Combine, running a 4.59/40 (same number Cam Newton did) and showed a good arm throwing the ball in drills.
