I am impressed with his leadership skills and he is extremely clutch. He has several come from behind wins and has made some huge plays. For example, this year he led NC State back from a 13 point lead in the 4th quarter against #3 ranked Florida State. He completed two 4th down passes and a TD with less than a minute left. That's the sort of thing I'm looking for.
I don't know how much coaching he would need to be ready to play. He does need to make some better decisions but, so does Geno. Geno may have nice placement but he is easily confused and he makes some terrible decisions imo. He doesn't read defenses well before the snap and he looks down field too much. Also, that nice placement will be different in the NFL. Throwing deep into triple coverage isn't going to work.
After the snap, if the first look isn't there, 90% of the time he just throws it deep. About 10% of the time he checks it down. Watch him against Texas Tech below and you'll see what I mean. They aren't even a great defense. I want to like Geno but he scares me. After watching the Tech tape, I can't see how he would go #1 overall. Note that when you watch the tape the first drive was already orchestrated at practice.
