    I was actually going through old ESPN the Magazine's that compared them pre-draft the other day. No one thought Smith would be great, but many thought he would be solid. There were a lot of questions on Rodgers -- he was a flash in the pan, he didn't have exceptional measurables, and all of Tedford's other guys were absolute busts - Akilli Smith, Joey Harrington, Kyle Boller.

    We don't take him unless we are committed to switching to a 34 defense OR switching Ayers to DE and moving either him or Colin to OLB.

    If the coaches feel like Ayers can hold down OLB in a 43 then we have no need for him...McCarthy is a beast and we should give him atleast another year b4 we throw him away.

    Secondary and interior o-line is our biggest need...trading back might be our best option this year..

    I think it's his story that has gotten him talked about. Plus ND is somewhat relevant again so the national media looks and says hey this guy's grandmother and girlfriend died in the off-season and he is pretty damn good so of course he gets a lot of talk.

    I would like to see him here as well...and with each passing game our chance of him being around when we draft goes up, so, who knows?

    His draft audition will be in about a month...his (and ND's) performance against Alabama may make a huge difference in his draft position IMO.

    Te'o was a 5* star recruit out of high school, started freshman year, all american, award winner, heisman finalist this year, 1st rounder last year, and leader of a top defense this year. He's a 1 year wonder?

    Can't pass on him if he is there. Our defense is too bad to pass up on a guy that could anchor it for the next decade.

    Id rather trade down and focus on remaking the oline and running game and safety help if we pick high enough. You can get high quality guyd st these positions down in the draft.

    Itd go further than one very good player.
