Eagles MUST Pull a Julio Jones/RGIII for Geno Smith

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Luck and RGIII prove what we already know: the NFL is about quarterbacking and therefore teams should do anything they can to get elite quarterback play.

What is new is that the Lewin career forecast has more accurately diagnosed which college quarterbacks will play at a high level than traditional scouting. Look at last seasons article, Luck and RGIII were top 10 all time forecasts, and Russell Wilson's forecast was so high they weren't sure the formula was right. Turns out it was, it was the scouts who were wrong.

Elite level quarterback prospects are rare, there isn't necessarily one every season. The scouts say there isn't one this season, but they're wrong. Geno Smith will have a Lewin career forecast close to RGIII's. In other words, top ten all time. He completes 68% of his passes, and started 41 games. 40TDs to only 6 picks. Three year starter. 6'3" and has the frame to go 225. Makes every Pro throw in a Pro style offense. He doesn't have RGIII's wheels, but that also means less injury risk.All the numbers add up to a forecast of roughly 2000+ DYAR, almost TWICE Foles' forecast.

The Eagles are in the best position to get him that they will be for years. Top five pick, teams dumb as dirt picking above them. Now is not the time to hold onto a good prospect and let that keep you from a truly great prospect. Trade Foles, trade picks, get Geno, compete with the big boys again.
