  • Andre Smith struggles at Alabama pro day

    Alabama offensive tackle Andre Smith didn’t perform well at his Pro Day workout today in front of the entire league after creating a stir by leaving the NFL scouting combine early last month. One league source told us: “He bombed.”

    According to NFL.com, Smith was not “overly impressive.” His top 40-yard dash time was 5.28 seconds and he bench pressed 225 pounds just 19 times.

    According to our league source, Smith ran with no shirt on and was visibly overweight. With a group of trainers urging him on to run faster, Smith had a generally rough day.

      40 time doesnt mean much for an o.t. and 19 reps on the bench isnt horrible.

      still clearly the #1 o.t. in the draft imho.

            ahhaha, looks like the extra 2 weeks didnt help. What was he doing all this time? Sitting around eating bags of chips. I guess he figured he could just show up and play and if he sucks well at least he got a **** load of guaranteed money.

              Well he lost 15 pounds off of his playing weight so he must have did something

                I've been saying that the whole time.

                He's Shawn Andrews #2, and that isn't a bad thing.
                Kaepernick is this years pat white. Thin, gimmick offense and doesn't possess an nfl arm. The ncaa constantly regurgitates clones of past players and amazingly enough, tricks some people into thinking they're better than their cloned half. Kaepernick was a complete waste of a senior bowl qb spot. A better qb will come from the east/west shrine or whatever they're calling it now...count on it

                  I agree with him.

                  Talent-wise he's the best.

                  Who cares about his speed and muscular endurance?

                  5.28 is BAD for a gigantic mauling OL? lol

                    He ran with his shirt off? Did he seriously think that would impress scouts, watching his big belly and man titties flop all over the place?

                        I think you were trying to show his touchdown catch with the second clip? Not sure... but yea- he caught a screen and ran for a touchdown lol it was pretty funny.

                        Anyway, Smith has the Ogden-trait in that if gets inside your pads you aren't going anywhere. The 19-reps measures muscular endurance, not strength.

                        He's way too good to play inside. I could maybe see him as a RT early in his career, but he's got fine footwork, excellent HANDS (overlooked in OL evaluation), and great balance for such a powerful mauler. Will he struggle somewhat with speed rushers? Sure. But who doesn't?

                        The problem with Smith is this "leaving the combine" stuff. Extremely weird IMO. As a strictly on-the-field player, however, he's the top OT and I would argue the third best talent in the draft behind Crab and Curry.

                          I would question whether he's the best talent wise. There is just too much baggage with this guy. He becomes a bargain later in the 1st round but i wouldnt be putting any big money into this guy, too risky.

                              How long are his arms and how big are his hands and what was his time in the short shuttle and 10 yard split?? How much did he weigh in at and how tall was he?

                              Or is everyone just concentrating on his bench?
