OT Andre Smith out of Alabama was considered to be a possible number one overall selection about a month ago. Ever since then his stock has gone down, way down. Today was Alabama’s pro day in which he performed his own personal work out.
According to NFL scouts who attended, he had a terrible work out and dropped his stock even more. His 40-yard dash time was horrendous and he only bench pressed 225 pounds 19 times. Let’s not forget that Brodrick Bunkley repped that same amount 44 times at the combine before he entered the draft.
We all know that the Eagles need to pick up a young OT to fill an immediate role in their offense. It is looking like this possible number one overall pick may fall late into the first round. The question is do you take the risk on a guy who was once so highly regarded or just let him be someone elses problem. It’s hard to tell right now but it something that the Eagles will have to look into and consider.
