    For as much as Troy Smith gets trumpted, very little is said about how amazing his supporting cast is at the college of columbus.

    When you've got Ted Ginn and Anthony Gonzlez split on either side and Antonio Pittman in the backfield, it'd be hard not to find some success as a quarterback.

    Troy Smith has looked great, but there are any number of QBs playing in college right now that would look great with those guys around him.

    He's a hell of a player, but I wonder how effective he'll be at the next level. I'm not nearly certain enough to put a top-10 pick on him, or even a first round pick at all.

    Troy Smith doesn't project anything better than a clipboard holder until year 4. He had a great collegiate season this year.

    I don't think anyone has him higher than round 2 on the draft board. If I were a Troy Smith fan (am not), I'd hope for him to be drafted by a middle to upper team so he wouldn't have to start immediately.

    Since Vince Young is doing so well the last half of the year, I see him a 2nd rounder being drafted by the Vikings.

    I think Smith is coming into the NFL at a perfect time, where a guy who can do more than drop back, sit in the pocket and read defenses can excel. I'll be more surprised if he is not a success than if he is, and before year 4.

    I think Quinn will have a far more successful pro career then Smith.

    Some said the very same thing about the Bengals drafting Palmer.

    If they were smart, Cleveland would draft the best Offensive Lineman they can get their hands on.

    ...and they've all been proven wrong.

    Kirk Herbstreit was mentioning this very thing on Sportscenter. He's says that Cleveland should have learned by watching what happened to Texas this year by not drafting Vince Young. He says that they should make sure they get him.

    It would definitely be a great PR move, Cleveland fans would love it. I, on the other hand, would not love that so much...

    Yeah, maybe that kid out of Wisconsin, Joe Thomas. He is a mountain.

    Mel Kiper said today that Smith is looked at as anywhere from a 10th overall through 3rd round type of guy. So much will depend on his workouts because of his "lack of stature". Kiper said that the majority of GMs look at him as a mid to late first round draft choice.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Ryan Leaf had a better career than Smith will in the pros.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Thoroughly agree Yachtzee. It will be nice to get Bentley back next year. That is almost like drafting an offensive lineman.

    But they need both offensive linemen AND defensive linebackers.
