No. 2 – Geno Smith

Geno Smith hasn’t been the quarterback for the New York Jets that he was for the West Virginia Mountaineers. Smith rewrote the history books as he helped the Mountaineers transition from the Big East to the Big 12 under head coach Dana Holgorsen.

He ranks first in every passing category and finds himself holding the top two spots in lists such as total offense in a season, passing yards and pass completions. From 2009-11, Smith accounted for 12,004 yards of total offense and 11,662 passing yards.

Smith’s career ended in a loss to Syracuse in the Pinstripe Bowl, but he’ll most be remembered for engineering an improbable 70-33 win over Clemson in the 2011 Orange Bowl.
