Only answer is Geno.
Even his tweets from around 2 days ago imply he was told in no uncertain terms he'd get picked at some point in the first. I really hope as soon as he was out of camera range he pulled his agent aside and asked him "just what the frick was that?".

Well no shite all bad decisions come back on a coach to one degree or another, but using your first draft pick as a HC (and a top 10 pick at that) to take the QB you coached the last 3 years in college, a QB that most consider worthy of a 2nd-3rd round pick at best, leaves you absolutely zero fricking...

When you look at Smith’s passes this year, more than 60 percent of his throws were for nine yards or less. That’s the distance the ball traveled in the air from the line of scrimmage – not the total distance on the play. And only 10.6 percent of his passes traveled 20 yards or...
