My point is you have no idea what constitutes tip five talent at this point.
Remember when Matt Barkley this time last year was considered by many to be the first player off the board? How'd that turn out?
I could give only about 3737284837272 other examples.
What constitutes Star as a Top 5 pick? How about freakish strength, an explosive first step, dominant at the point of attack, ability to split double teams with impressive productivity in back-to-back seasons? Hey, if you can find me a Wilfork, Suh, Ngata or Dareus in every draft, then I'll concede but NTs like Star don't come around often. You'd be an idiot to think so.
Just because Barkley and Geno were projected to go in the Top 10 doesn't they would have. Smith, himself, could attest to that. It certainly doesn't help your case that many analysts viewed the QB class from this draft as the poorest in years.
Point blank, unless Lee suffers a devastating injury, he's going in the Top 5.
