    Interesting Stats on Troy Smith

    I was watching ESPN and they made these statements:

    Troy Smith was 21 for 21 in the redzone in 2006. Eight of those touchdown passes were to 8 different players. Of the 5 interceptions he threw this year, 3 of them were tipped balls. Against Michigan, Troy Smith threw for 316 yds with 4 TDs and 1 int. Brady Quinn threw for 234 yds 3 TDs and 3 ints in their loss. We need a guy who is lights out in the red zone and Troy Smith is certainly that. He is a bit of a contrast to JaMarcus Russell because he has a better short game. They compared him to Drew Brees. I would like to pick Troy Smith at 9th.

    at 9? troy smith is not even a firt round pick or QB in the NFL. it is also kind of hard to equate performance from 1 team to another, against PSU smith threw for 100 yards 1 TD and 2 ints quinn had 3 TDs and no ints in 3 quarters.

    I like Troy Smith.But I dunno about pick 9.If Russel is their I wouldn't mind taking him.Or trade down and get an extra pick and get Smith would be nice.I think it all depends on what the new head coach wants to do.

    Russell will be unavailable at 9th but he has all the physical attributes and looks like a young Culpepper. I think there is a legitimate shot at Smith where we draft and provided he has a good game vs. Florida his stock will soar. I think a good game in the National Championship will secure Smith's spot as the number 2 QB in the draft (should Russell declare). Leak has to split time at Florida as a senior.

    Serious question?

    I think you have them in order of how I'd want them, but the gap between the first two and Leak is huge.

    Sounds like a reasonable choice to me if Russel or Quinn aren't available...

    Russel if we had to choose. But none of the above.

    Chris Leak will be a career backup. I just don't see him ever developing into a quality starter. He has never shown the knack for taking over games - AT ALL. He plays within the system, shows little leadership and lacks competitive fire. He has very little mobility and he really lacks composure. He could prove me wrong. But I seriously doubt it.

    Troy Smith may eventually be a starter in the NFL. But he it will take him a few years. There are quite a few question marks Smith carries with him. His mechanics are flawed. He completed alot of short passes that were made to look better with YAC by the recievers. I question his medium to long range accuracy.

    Russel has the most potential, IMO. He may not be there at 9. Even if he is, I doubt we'd take him. But that will depend on the style of offense our new coach wants to run. Russel will be better suited in an offense that allows him to be creative with his feet. He will not be a pure pocket passer (which I prefer and historically has more success.)

    Just my personal opinions.

    As i have been syaing i think Russel will be gone after the first pick. Troy Smith will be a late first or early second round pick depending on his individual workout. Must remember Individual workouts are more important to most scouts then what they did in College. As i see it now it goes like this Russel, Quinn, Brohm, Smith. Leak will be a late round pick, and with the right coaching and right system Leak may be a solid NFL QB.
    Round 1 - Brian Cushing OLB
    Round 2 - Ron Brace DT
    Round 2 - Sean Smith DB
    Round 3 - Jasper Brinkly ILB
    Round 4 - Augustus Parrish OT
    Round 5 - Marko Mitchell WR
    round 7 - Marlon Lucky RB
    round 7 - Greg Carr WR
    round 7 - Ryan Purvis TE
