Andre Smith: #1 Overall Pick?

I am going to preface this by saying that I don't think Todd McShay knows a damn thing about football, and it is pretty obvious that he is mainly just one of the typical talking head "experts" on ESPN, but nevertheless...

In McShay's latest 2009 mock draft, he has Andre Smith going to the Cincinnati Bengals as the number one overall draft pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. Again, it's not that McShay knows anything, per se, but he's reporting fairly common knowledge... Andre might not go number one overall, but he is going to go extremely high in the draft if he comes out after this season. Given that he is playing what is arguably the second most important position in all of the NFL -- and given that damn near all of the teams that will pick high (Bengals, Lions, 49ers, Rams, etc) could really use a left tackle -- he's probably a lock to be a top ten pick and he could easily go much higher than that.

As much as I would love to see Andre stick around as a senior, it's becoming more and more apparent that for that to happen he will have to turn down somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-35 million dollars in guaranteed money from the NFL. Obviously, that's not going to happen.
