Default Re: Andre Smith MIA at Combine.

I'm aware of that.

My thing was how could you drop someone 10 spots for the actions he took at the combine. I didn't feel it was a character flaw on his part.

However, after he didn't perform well in his pro-day... I wouldn't have a problem with him dropping down based on that. I still think teams are making a mistake is they pass over him if he fills a void on your team. On game-days he was a beast out there, and to me... performing on game-day is more important than performing at your combine or your pro-day.

Scouts should value his game-tape more than how well he runs a drill. If they do that he's still getting picked in the top half of the draft.
