    Troy Smith

    Alright, Mel Kiper was just on ESPN

    And he was saying he beleives Troy Smith goes from a second round pick, to a early 4th probably.. After a poor showing at the BCS Championship game.. It displayed alot of the negatives that he had in the game I guess.. And he was questioning his late release and height (5'11)

    Personally I thought it was the team that played bad.. No WRs getting open, blocking was horrible, and the D was horrid

    Would you guys want to take a shot at him?

    I would in the 4th round for sure.. Possibly 3rd.. I think he could be a very good NFL QB.. He seemed to have pretty good accuracy and decent strength.. And his legs were good

    So what do u all think? Does anyone else think he will fall into the 4th possibly? And if so, do we get him?

    We have Tarvaris, so the answer is no, we wont draft Smith.

    Re: Troy Smith

    Yes we do have Tarvaris..

    But is he FOR SURE the answer? No one knows yet.. He could be amazing... He could be horrible.. I like the upside with him though

    After him we have Brooks.. Not too happy with him

    I think it would be wise to pick up another QB.. Just my opinon

    If he is there on the second day when Childress says he wants to get the third QB then yes I would consider it but I need to look at some other prospects to see how I'd rank people around then.

    No Troy he will not be a good QB in the NFL.
    We need to pick up Matt Schaub from the falcons and throw him in the mix at QB.

    Great... Another QB that loses the big games.


    No thanks... I wouldn't take him with a 7th round pick.

    I hate Troy Smith and I especially hate Ohio State, but jeez, come on.
    He lost A BIG GAME not all the big games.
    Wouldn't you rather say it was your Gator defense that caused that performance, and not his ability (or lack thereof) to win the big games?
    Look at they guy's career, and he's been touted as a guy that always performs in the big games.
    The only real blemish was his last game.
    I guess everybody will be evaluated only by their last college game.
    Good luck in the draft Brady Quinn, you'll be lucky to go in the 7th round too.

    Re: Troy Smith

    He has matured a lot as a passer this year, but I still don't see him as an NFL QB.
    He's short, not a game breaking runner, and not a spectacular passer.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he proved a lot of people wrong, but I wouldn't use anything more than a 4th round pick on him.

    Re: Troy Smith

    He is totally overrated.


    He doesn't know how to handle the game when his best friend isn't on the field.


    He can't make the big plays.

    Listen its time for the media and the hype to get over Troy Smith and (Brady Quinn).

    The Vikings have had many QB's that can't handle themselves when the game changes or the stakes are raised.


    We don't need another Daunte C, Jeff George, Randal Cunningham, Tommy Kramer, Rich Gannon, or Wade Wilson.

    We need a Tom Brady, Joe Montana, or Steve Young.

    We need a ring.
    Not another frustrating loss in the big game.

    Whoa...slow down?

    We do not need another Cunningham or Kramer.

    Thems fightin' words.

    Tommy was the man.
    Just think how good he'd be if he did not play with a hangover.
