Rick, Let Wade continue to pick the defensive players and Gary pick the offensive players. You proved your drafting ability when Gary had the elective surgery and you were the main guy at the combine. Thanks for the KJ/OkOye picks.
Continue on with your figurehead position and let the cap guys do their jobs. As a guy with a position on the competition commitee I would like to thank you for the many rules changes that are ruining the game I love. How did you get a place on the competition commitee to begin with? Were you qualified? What are you qualifications to be on such an important panel?

Remember when KJ was picked, we had quite a different coaching staff feeding Rick Smith information. Most likely it was Frank Bush and his defensive staff that made this "BPA" assessment reguarding KJ; not Smith alone. The proof is in the difference between Wade's draft and Bush's draft. One can only guess who Wade would have selected in 2010.
Smith's forte' is snagging free agents. While he hasn't batted 1.000 (and who does?) he's done fairly well filling holes with guys off the streets. He'll do well to leave the draft picks to the coaches.
