Do you think Rick Smith has done a good job upgrading the talent of the team, and more importantly plugging in the holes we had before he came. Before he got here, and after the Schaub trade, the most pressing needs were both safety spots, defensive line, corner, offensive line, and linebacker I'd like to give him credit for Schaub but from what I understood Kubiak wanted Schaub and told Rick to do what it takes to get him. Here are the drafts; 2007 1/10 DT Amobi Okoye 3/73 WR Jacoby Jones 4/123 CB Fred Bennett 5/144 S Brandon Harrison 5/163 G Brandon Frye 6/183 G Kasey Studdard 7/218 LB Zac Diles 2008 1/26 LT Duane Brown 3/79 CB Antwaun Molden 3/89 RB Steve Slaton 4/118 LB Xavier Adibi 5/151 DT Frank Okam 6/173 S Dominique Barber 7/223 QB Alex Brink 2009 1/15 LB Brian Cushing 2/46 DE Connor Barwin 3/77 C Antoine Caldwell 4/112 CB Glover Quin 4/122 TE Anthony Hill 5/152 TE James Casey 6/188 CB Brice McCain 7/223 S Troy Nolan If someone else would list the free agents that would be nice. I am not overly impressed. He's just now addressed the DE position with Smith and Barwin, both of whom haven't produced a whole lot. Its still early there though. He hasn't addressed safety at all. A bunch of special teamers, that's it. He botched the DT position with Okam and Okoye, so far anyway. Myers has been less than average. He did pick up Studdard but the jury is still out on him. I like Caldwell, props there although he hasn't seen the field. Love Duane Brown. Our CBs are just as bad as before he came around. Actually Reeves is an upgrade, but he missed on Bennett. Small school players like Molden (can't stay healthy or get on the field), Quin, and McCain have been non factors. It's still early on those guys but we needed immediate help. He brought in one good RB in Slaton, who's struggling. Other than Slaton he has done little to upgrade that. He's done well with linebackers. Ill give him that. Diles, Cushing, and Adibi are significant upgrades. He picked up Casey, who I guess could replace Daniels, if we are lucky, but why replace him? He is a probowler. Casey can't see the field with Owen, Dreesen, and Hill on the roster. I think Smith hasn't done nearly enough. Sure he upgraded LB, picked up one good RB in 3 years, got a couple OL that Alex Gibbs can work with, but that's really all I am seeing. Drafted 4 corners in his time, no upgrade so far. Drafted 3 safeties, no upgrade. 2 DTs, no upgrade. How do yall feel about Smith, independent of Kubiak, moving forward?
