He's more like a bigger, slower Colin Kaepernick than a Newton clone.

I wouldn't be surprised if Geno Smith jumps into the top half of the first round after all is said and done. The system he played in is something he will have to hear about, but he is a solid runner and his passing has really improved over the year.
As for Thomas, he seemed like he was trying to place the ball today, compared to zipping the ball. He does have a big arm, but will still have to polish up the little things.

Geno is going to excel this year and with today's NFL, it really isn't as far off as people think as far as pro style offenses. Sure, its not ideal but his physical tools have improved and he isn't making many mistakes no matter how you look at it. WVU is looking more than ready for a big year and if they avoid those weird letdown games against far inferior opponents Geno should have the spotlight the whole way through into the bowl game. Depending on who they play, he might see his biggest defensive test there because no one on the schedule now looks like they can defend a competent offense.

Logan Thomas looked pretty average last night - missed high on alot of passes and looks to be more of a plodder as a runner. Klein might have a chance to make some noise and move up draft board - both Thomas and Klein are similar players.

Matt Jones was 6'6" and athletic, does the fact that Thomas is about 15 lbs heavier mean he'll automatically be a better player?

Matt Jones got drafted before Aaron Rodgers, and the Jags asked him to be a WR.

6'6", 245, and athletic doesn't automatically make you a good football player. Maybe 6'6", 260, and athletic will. But first and foremost to get drafted highly as a quarterback, you have to be able to throw the ball well. Thomas didn't throw the ball particularly well week 1, but it's a long season.

Logan Thomas reminds me a lot a Josh Freeman, similar build, arm, playing style, athleticism.

I'd say it's too early to project him as the 1/1 overall. Not enough there IMO in his total game.

Freeman is a season away of being replaced IMO. He was overrated coming into the 2009 draft. This is a make or break season for him

WHy are some guys allowed to have bad seasons where they throw way too many damn picks, where other guys are ready to be kicked out of the league for INTs??

Freeman obviously turned the ball over too often last season, 22 picks, and didn't convert enough scoring plays through the air, only 16 TDs. But he still threw for more than 3500 yards and nearly 63% completions.

I agree if his 2012 season doesn't resemble his 2010 career year, his job as a starter is in jeopardy, but IMO it's not an accident his HC was fired.
Anyway, that's who Logan Thomas reminds me of, the 'good' Josh Freeman.
