NFL Draft 2013: 'Geno Smith reminds me of Alex Smith coming out of Utah'

This Geno Smith-Alex Smith comparison comes via NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Here's what he said:

Interesting comparison. I don't think Alex Smith is a total bust but he did take five years to come around. That's a long time, rarely given in the NFL. Smith is a capable quarterback but he's not even the best one on his own team. That's not the comparison I want for the No. 1 overall pick.
