    Ohio State's Smith petitions Browns

    Browns | Ohio State's Smith petitions team

    The Associated Press reports top NFL Draft prospect QB Troy Smith (Ohio State) is pushing hard for this hometown team, the Cleveland Browns, to select him in the 2007 NFL Draft this year. After being named the area's outstanding collegiate athlete at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards, Smith thanked the city's fans for their support and declared, "Hopefully, I'll get a chance to represent you guys at the next level with the Cleveland Browns," Smith said. Playing for the Browns has been a lifelong dream for the Heisman Trophy winner. "If that were to happen, that would be a dream come true because I could stay in the community and give back." The Browns will have the third or fourth overall draft choice in the first round.

    I think its kind of admirable that he has some loyalty to the area, this seem rare in professional sports. Everyone's after that extra few million. Even if he ended up being a back-up QB, he'll still make tons of money. That, or he knows he's not going to end up in Cleveland and he's trying to make himself sound like a good guy.
