Smitty will be 35 years old going into next season. he still displayes the toughness ,but his abbilities have fallen off the last 2 seasons. i love the man but he will be done soon. this is why WR is the biggest need. we are right there with the jags and jets when it comes to the recieving corps. something has to change. and change now. we can easily be worse on O even with Smitty on the team.
Heck, I'd argue the Jags have a better receiving corps than we do. Blackmon + Shorts is superior to any combo we could put on the field at the moment.
I bet you every huddler can do a draft board, and not one huddler would get their board the same as Gman and company.
The guy was/is extremely raw and didn't play division I football. Every single analyst was shocked that he was selected where he was. He didn't get on the field and is now a year behind in his development compared to almost every guy selected in that round last year. Some of those guys drafted right after him were starters and played quite well this past season. Throw in guys that played well on teams drafted in the 5th-7th rounds... and I have a hard time believing he was 100% the BPA. Now, based on potential alone, he could have been. But based on his resume and what he did in college; doubtful.
Let's hear your argument that he was best player available at the 108th overall pick.
