NFL Mock Draft 2013: Jaguars take Geno Smith

After a stellar workout at West Virginia's pro day last week, Geno Smith won't fall past the Jaguars at No. 2 according to SB Nation's latest mock draft.

The 2013 NFL Draft plans for the Jacksonville Jaguars may have become much more clear this past week. West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith put on a very impressive display at his pro day Thursday in front of a large contingent from the Jags. According to SB Nation's latest mock draft, the performance was good enough to lock Smith into the No. 2 overall pick.

Matthew Fairburn said that the selection would make "a ton of sense."

The Jaguars sent the full court press on West Virginia's pro day last week, presumably to see Geno Smith. Coach Gus Bradley, general manager David Caldwell, offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch and three prominent front office members all made the trip to see the quarterback in person. That's either an elaborate smoke screen or the Jaguars have serious interest in Smith. Given that quarterback is the biggest need on Jacksonville's roster, Smith would make a ton of sense. He's the sure fire top quarterback in this class and has the skill set to be a franchise guy.

If not the Jaguars, then the Oakland Raiders or the Buffalo Bills could be interested in the signal caller, according to Dan Kadar. If Smith somehow slips past the Jags, don't expect him to fall out of the top 10, much less the first round as many had predicted prior to Smith's workout in Morgantown.
