Discussion in 'Patriots Draft Talk' started by Chewy, Mar 2, 2007.
What does everybody think about Steve Smith? I haven't seen many people discuss him.
-compares to Keary Colbert at USC(Keary had 1 monster year then injuries hurt him badly)
-Hes a very good route runner..not great but very good
-He catches almost everything
-he was their mr. reliable in a way..like Troy Brown is for us
-hes not very quick or very fast(despite combine) but he gets open with route running
-he finds open spots in the defense
-should be a 3rd rounder..never will be a #1 WR but could be a very good 2
In other words, he's a generic Patriots wide receiver.
Hey, he was on my draft board even before he blew away the scouts @ the combine (when I thought he was "just another posession receiver"). In a way, he kind of reminds me of Greg Jennings from last year (who was my 2nd round mock pick, before we moved up). I haven't done my board yet, but I would guess that he slot in around 40-50. Hey, we still have about 58 'til the draft. All of these guys will get their airtime (on wbor as I'm hearing on another thread).
