West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback Geno Smith ran a blistering 4.56 40-yard dash in his first attempt at the NFL Scouting Combine. In his second attempt, Smith clocked a 4.60.

Smith is not known as a running quarterback, but he certainly has the skills to tuck the ball and run. Why has he not done this in the past?
It is possible that Smith is worried about the stereotype of black quarterbacks and doesn’t want to rely on his speed and athleticism to move the ball. Instead, Smith wanted to show off his arm in college and prove that he is the real deal as a quarterback.
