No. 1 Geno Smith

New York Jets fans may not want to believe it, but Geno Smith is, statistically speaking, the best all-around player in WVU football history.

When Smith was on, he was on for the Mountaineers. He rewrote the WVU passing record books and the numbers he established at the school will not be going away any time soon.

Smith tallied 12,004 yards of total offense in his career. He also engineered the highest-scoring Orange Bowl with a 70-33 win over Clemson in 2012.

Smith’s 21-consecutive completions in a game, along with 65 pass attempts in a game are school records. He also passed for eight touchdowns in WVU’s first Big 12 game and put up eight 300-yard games in his career.

The Jets picked Smith with the 39th overall pick in 2013.
