Alex Smith is a much better QB prospect than Frye IMO.

Because Frye is sweet. If you look at his numbers, and considering the lack of talent around him, he did an amazing job.

Yes but Frye also faced just as bad a lack of talent against him. The league is just looking for another Mac QB. He's nowhere close to Leftwich or Roethlisberger, or even Pennington.

And let me just say that the toughest, best hands, and rout running reciever in this draft is Mark Clayton hands down.

Yeah, I like him too. And it would be sweet to have another Mark Clayton. Would you give 'im '83?
