    To tell you the truth, I don't think we will take him even if he is available. I would like that, but Spags said he wanted a team full of high character guys that put team first. Obviously Andre Smith is a careless guy if he decides to leave the combine without telling anyone. I don't think he meets Spagnuolo's standards. Not going to happen.

    Re: If Andre Smith Drops to Round 2...Should We Pick Him up

    He reminds me of Michigan DT Alan Branch of the 2006 Draft Class, who did slide to the top of round 2 after being originally projected as a Top 10 pick, if not Top 5 pick. He had a poor combine and messed up his interviews pretty badly. The Cardinals traded up to get him, and he hasn't shown signs of being a competitor to start over Gabe Watson or Darnell Dockett.

    Based on this analogy, and despite the fact that I accidentally voted yes, I'd like to issue a firm "no thank you".

    This guy might be crazy like a fox. He may not want to play for a team like the Lions or the Rams but maybe for a team like Jacksonville. He'll go in Round 1 somewhere.

    Of course, that type of attitude is very short sighted. Imagine if Jake Long dogged it to avoid being taken by Miami or Atlanta (who ended up making the playoffs), only to be selected by Seattle or Jacksonville (who both tanked).

    I'd rather draft a guy who will give the same effort and play with the same enthusiasm regardless of who he plays for.

    There is no way in hell he falls that far.

    Someone would trade up to take him late 1st round for sure. MADMAN Jerry Jones springs to mind

    Just trying to throw out some conspiracy theories. It's the offseason and this is the worst part of the offseason for me. It's not my plate of biscuits and gravy to analyze every player in the draft. I compare fans that do that to women in a shoe store. Can never make up your mind.

    Thought you were an accountant,TX. Aren't you up to your keister in W-2s at this time of year?

    As to your conspiracy theory, why give up umpteen million in guaranteed money to go to a 5-11 team?

    If you'd said Philly.... I hear the kid likes to eat...maybe there's an under-the-table cheesesteak deal involved.

    I am...that's why I haven't posted in 3 weeks. It's sort of died down this week though.

    I don't think there is a chance he'll be there in the 2nd. But if he is, I think it all depends on who we draft in the 1st. If we drafted J. smith or E. monroe I would want a Center/LB/CB. But if we draft Curry in 1st I would be all for A. Smith in 2nd if available.

    Andre Smith is definately worth the chance of a 2nd round pick, too bad he won't be there.

    I still say Draft Curry in the 1st and get an OT in the 2nd.

    Will not happen. He will be drafted in the 1st round. Probably no later than the 15th pick....

    Yes he wouuld be a dominant guard, but Mack would be a better choice I believe. Oher won't be around.
