Actually he is underrated by those that don't do their research. Scored 51TDs, 21TDs of 50yds or more, 308 points individually, 7588 all purpose yds, 2 TD passes, only player in the nation with a TD in every game in 09'. Unanimous 1st team all- American KR, record for all purpose yds, fastest 10yrd split of the 40 yd dash 1.46 seconds, team captain. I haven't even scratched his bio. Shouldn't pass on this guy!
Yep. People who say we shouldn't draft him because we have Frank just don't understand the modern game of football. Don't think of him as a RB. Think of him as an offensive weapon. He can line up wide on either side, in the slot, as a single back, or in a 2 back set. He could see the field on 80% of plays and not take any carries away from Frank. Even when the ball isn't going his way, defenses will have to account for him on every play.
Imagine Crabtree, Morgan, Davis, Gore and Spiller all on the field at the same time for most of the game. Then the onus is on Smith to use those weapons, and on the O-Line to protect him, and make holes for Gore and Spiller.
