A.J. Smith has lost it
I think it's official, now. Three straight years that players were either taken too high or given too much in order to draft them. This team just no longer is deep enough to treat the draft in this manner. The dline still sucks, and the lbs and safeties no longer suit the current defensive philosophy. I like Matthews, but he is a luxury in this offense, imo. The oline doesn't run block well, and he'll get, what 15 carries a game? In the current offense, I don't see much of a dropoff from Mathews to Hardesty, Gerhart, or a few others. But my biggest concern is that it is obvious that Smith is falling in love with certain players and reaching like Al Davis to get them, losing the overall picture... Hester, Davis, English, now here we go again. I should learn not to look forward to this day every year. I'm just pissed. A.J. has to go, I'm afraid.
