NFL Scouting Combine Is Under Way, But Where Is Andre Smith?


This is the weekend where all of the college players looking to be drafted merge on Indianapolis to show the NFL Scouts what they are made of.  For the Jaguars, LT is one of the most glaring needs and with 4 top tier LT in this year’s draft, the chances of one of them being available at the #8 pick is pretty high.

But one of those 4 prospects has decided to skip the workouts declaring that he was not in appropriate shape?  Not in shape for the combine?  Didn’t you mark this day on your calender?  He says that he will workout at Alabama’s Pro Day but make no doubt that this is hurting his draft stock.  It was once thought that he would not only be the first LT taken in the draft but the first overall pick in the draft.  Now it looks like Michael Oher, Jason Smith and Eugene Monroe will be moved ahead of Andre Smith on most draft boards.

This might put the once number one pick right in the laps of the Jaguars at the #8 pick.  But should we take some one who seems to have a less than stellar work ethic even though he was a dominating college player?  I’m interested to hear your thoughts so leave a comment below.
