Gonna get a second round value regardless.
I was just trying to be conservative. Didn't want to disappoint. Actually, based on other deals like the Cutler and Cassell dealers just noted, Smith should be worth a 1st.
Most likely Smith will get sacked 9 times.
If the offensive line blocks like it did last year against Baltimore, Kaep will get sacke at least half as many times as that, except he'll lose just about the same amount of yards "trying to make something happen".
Go ahead and rewatch that game last year. Smith was getting killed that whole game. However, he does get some blame. On our very first play from scrimmage he missed a wide open Delanie Walker for a quick 6. Delanie would've probably dropped it though.
