Interesting what they say about Akili Smith:




Smith emerged after one good season at Oregon and almost went No. 1 over Tim Couch and Donovan McNabb. But Smith was destined to be a bust from the beginning. Not only was he selected by the Bengals - a reliable indicator of future flops - he was coached by QB guru Jeff Tedford in college. Tedford-coached quarterbacks -- Trent Dilfer, Joey Harrington and Kyle Boller - haven't had much NFL success. Aaron Rodgers is the next Tedford pupil to hit the draft.

Smith was an undiciplined "gunslinger" and not qualified pro material....

Was that on SI.com? My Favorite line was about Derek Brown
A physical specimen at Notre Dame, Brown looked as if he would redefine the tight-end position in the NFL. Brown did change the way people thought about tight ends: Teams no longer wanted to take them in the first round
