Woody Johnson is back at it, defending his latest pick of a QB as he is all about these days the pick of Geno Smith.

Johnson said Tuesday the Jets’ talent evaluators gave the much-maligned Smith “a very high score” for his intangibles, revealing they would’ve picked the former West Virginia star in the first round if they had traded down with the 13th overall pick.

“I’m extremely happy to have him,” Johnson told reporters at an NFL symposium in Philadelphia, adding: “He’s welcome to the competition. It’s going to be fun.”

The quarterback competition won’t include Tebow, who was released last week in a long-anticipated move. One year after proclaiming, “You can never have too much Tebow,” Johnson acknowledged they goofed by trading for the popular backup.

“The fit, obviously, wasn’t perfect or he would still be there,” said Johnson, commenting for the first time since Tebow’s release. “It’s just one of those things. You make a lot of decisions in football that aren’t going to help, that aren’t helpful, and you have to move on from those decisions.

“When you make bad decisions, you make a decision that doesn’t work … I’m not saying it’s a bad decision. [When] you make a decision that doesn’t help the team, you move on. You have to learn to do that.”
