Andre Smith – OT. Alabama
Everyone seems to be talking about The Lions drafting a quarterback with the number one pick this year. But a guy that was projected to be a top 3 pick, then who fell out of favor by disappearing at the combine, may be the better choice, but is he worth the risk? It’s not his skills that are in question, because he was obviously the Number 1 college offensive lineman this year, it’s his judgment.
He was suspended by the team from the Sugar Bowl for having contact with an agent, and then did his Houdini act in Indianapolis. Is he just a dumb college football player and a trouble maker, or someone that just made a few bad decisions? Nobody know’s yet and that’s why General Managers get paid the big bucks.
