Steve Smith Draft day '01. "No, he's a little guy"


Recommended Posts

Man look at the receivers taken ahead of him

8. David Terrell

9. Koren Robinson

15. Rod Gardner (remember when we brought him to be a #2 receiver??)

16. Santana Moss

25. Freddie Mitchell

30. Reggie Wayne

33. Quincy Morgan

36. Chad Johnson/Ochocinco

41. Robert Ferguson

52. Chris Chambers

Wayne and Ocho were great, Moss had a good career and Chambers wasn't bad, but the rest...yikes

" ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. had Moss ranked as the fifth-best receiver and Smith at No. 18." 

Why does Mel Kiper's evaluation not surprise me?

Mel and apparently 30 NFL GMs. Not having Steve Smith at the top of the board is not that egregious an error. The Panthers only had a 3rd round grade on him.

You never know how that chip on a shoulder will affect a player.  In Steve Smith case that chip put him in the Hall of Fame. (I'm betting first ballot)

What a great article.  I don't know how many times I have watch that video but still get excited watching it.  Probably the greatest moment in Carolina Panther history.

To be fair to the Panthers they took a HoF talent in the first round and an All-Pro talent in the second round.

Clearly they were feeling it that year.
