I'm a big Geno Smith fan, and have been or a while.
That said, it's not a huge stretch to see how someone could view some of his behavior surrounding the draft as a tad petulant, like a child throwing a tantrum.
Truth be told though, every single draft sees guys get picked lower - sometimes way lower - than they believe they deserve. And a pretty good number of them afterward make statements about how they won't forget it, how they'll make the team's that passed on them regret it, etc etc. Generally speaking, nobody makes that big a deal over it.
So yeah, he's probably being a little immature about it, but he's still a college kid and it's par for the course with this event.
