BlueFin said:Thats not the way it looks to me at all. There are sources that lead you both ways, the sources I think are most credible lead me to believe Rodgers is their #1 choice........Smith is 1A.
I tend to put more credibility in the well known beat writer for the Niners Ira Miller than I do some of these national pundits that try to keep up with 32 teams.
I personally heard him say Nolan has final say, that Nolan likes Rodgers over Smith, and that their goal was to sign one of them prior to the draft, with Edwards as 1C if they can't work out a deal with the QB's.
Like Tampa. :wink:CrunchTime said:During his PC Saban went out of his way to spotlight Smith.It sounded to me as though he was directing his comments to other teams that might be interested in him.In other words a red herring.
Its his best chance of trading down to convince others that he might take Smith.
