    There have been a lot of rumors that the Raiders could be interested in Smith.

    On ESPN.

    I'm surprised were even looking at QB's. Reggie make the rite decision man don't screw us over.
    I really think it is purposely leaked propaganda to influence the Chiefs in picking Geno or causing someone else to want to move up the board to get him. If either scenario happens we are in a good spot.

    I hear you. The beauty part with the rookie wage scale, is that top picks are getting about half of what they used to. If he sucks, it doesn't set you back that terribly, which is why it is ok to take shots of players with big upsides. Saying that, I don't see a huge upside with Smith. How many games did WVA win down the stretch after a good start? Smith..or frankly any QB in this draft isn't capable of bringing our defense back when we are down 14 in the second half.

    I hope we don't take him also..too many other good players will be available that fill bigger holes on our team because despite what some fans reported earlier, most of the commentators say there is no easy way out of the Carson Palmer contract...thank you Hue Jackson..

    In all fairness to Geno Smith, considering all the passing attempts, he wasn't an INT machine. His defense couldn't stop a Greg Knapp led offense...look at the horrible #'s their D had.........

    Smith is probably the most accurate QB in the '13 draft.

    There are a lot worse reasons to draft a guy. Russell could shoot a football to the moon, but couldn't hit an accurate out-route while rolling for his life.

    In any other draft year, I'd be estatic to draft Geno Smith. But we have so many glaring needs at key positions, such as OL and DL, CBs, SS, FS, LBs....other than that, we are a completed team....LOL
