Ask yourself Maddog would you trade Smith for Kerrigan or Reed? To be honest I wouldn't trade him for Miller. The reason, as Smith gets bigger he can take snaps as a down lineman like Justin Smith. Pressure from downline men is far more valuable because it's much much harder to find dlinemen than rushing tweeners. Miller is special no question but Aldon is just as special.
Miller is the superior player, and I think you would not have one GM trade Miller for Smith. Miller is a starter, and a star. RIght now, Smith is a backup with a limited game.
As for a Smith for Kerrigan (48 tackles, 6 sacks and 4 forced fumbles) or Smith for Reed (a sack in five consecutive games) trade, right now these guys are outplaying Smith. Who will be the superior player in the end? Not sure. But, I'll take JJ Watt over any of these guys, any day. Watt is top five in sacks for 3-4 DE, and has the exact same stats as Justin Smith.
