Most of the extra picks in this draft are 4th round and later. Given the overall strength of the current roster, I would be surprised if any of them make the roster. Best I could see would be packaging some of them to move up a few spots in the 3rd or 4th to get someone who might be a valuable special teamer.
Special teams were a mess this season compared to last. A. MESS.
As to Alex Smith, I see him being used to package a move up high to grab a top level CB or DT/NT. There will be some good choices among those positions that will be available around 12-20 in the first round. Smith plus our #31 should move us up to grab someone there...if there is a trading partner.
