Default Re: Brett Smith, QB - Wyoming

I know we have several holes, but I wouldnt be against going the Redskins route and drafting 2 QBs. One with the top pikc (probably Bridgewater) and one with our 4th rounder. If Smith is available then, he would be a very intriguing prospect. Mettenberger would be another one that could slip because of his injury.

But gambling on Smith with our 2nd rounder or 3d rounder without haven taken another QB earlier would be too risky for me.

I also think he needs one year minimum holding a clipboard, preferably two. Not only is he facing a huge mental jump like Manziel, but he is also facing a huge jump in competition. I'm okay with that too. I actually prefer that, but it does fly in the face of McNair's "win now" mantra.
I would trade up into the bottom of the 2nd. Get Cassel on a 2yr deal. Regardless of whether one of the top 3 QB's are taken or not this is going to be a 3 yr rebuild (McNair is just trying to placate the fanbase) Smith should hold a clipboard next yr and start in the middle of 2015.

They may combine with other(s) but Robert Herron, Marqueston Huff, and Smith should generate some interest.

This team is in better shape now than we were after the 2010 debacle. The biggest thing we're lacking is the "want to" the mental toughness McNair is looking for. If OB, Crennel, & Vrabel can bring the "want to" I think we can have an 11-5 season like the Colts did after their 2-14 season, like Kansas City after their 2-14 season.

But...... I've been accused of being a little naive at times.

PS: What bothers you the most about not being invited to the Combine?

Quote:
BS: The thing that bugs me the most is just the fact that, in that situation, Ive never been a guy, I think its just how I grew up, how I was raised, Ive never been one to back down from any sort of competition and those are the best guys in the country. And I wanted to be on the same stage as all of them. I realize that I probably wasnt probably at a big name school and I wasnt part of a BCS Championship run or part of a really, really high bowl game the last few years, but at least Id be there with those guys and Id try to compete against them.

I would have done absolutely every drill. I would have thrown, I wouldve its just that at a place like that, Id be so humble. I would do every single event, get to meet all of those teams and compete. Its not a situation where Im trying to protect whatever stock I have, but its a chance to up it.

I dont know if you follow CFL much, but Travis Lulay, I was talking with him on the phone. He was a Grey Cup Champion, he was the MVP a couple years ago. Hes basically the Aaron Rodgers of the CFL. I was talking with on the phone, its just crazy that if you go to an event like that, probably just because of our mindset, being underdogs, being smaller school guys, being doubted. We just want that opportunity to compete and go through everything and go about it that way.

Is he "out" out, or can he be asked to throw the ball to receivers & TEs, & RBs like Yates was?

He should also know that it's not over just because he didn't get an invite.

Default Brett Smith QB Wyoming

I was looking over the 790 blog and came across Jayson Braddock's assessments of QBs. He has a write up on QBs in rounds 2-7 here:

http://www.sports790.com/onair/the-d...ound-12053064/

In his evaluation, he has Smith as the number 1 rated QB coming out. I hadn't heard anything about this guy and found this another interesting option. I know he's another "talking head" but there has to be something to his assessment. He seems to have good size, mobility, and a live arm. I think we have to come away with a solid starting QB in this draft, and was wondering if anyone else has looked into this guy as an option.

Thoughts?
