I'm not exactly out on a limb here. Can anyone really make the case that Geno Smith is the best player in this draft?

I won't go as far as Russ. Yes he's the best Qb in this class. But this class sucks. Smith's good points don't outweigh his bad points to get him up to 1. I don't see why this is such an unreasonable position.

it's possible that the unreasonable position is just assuming he goes 1, just cause he's a QB and that's what happens.
I think people are assuming that since a lot of QB's got picked high the last few years and because a lot of teams are QB hungry, that a QB/QB's will get picked high in this year's draft, but what if it isn't so? The most respected analyst I've seen, rated Smith in the 14-20 range and Barkley in the 20-25 range. I suspect even if there is some movement up because of the importance of the position, Smith will go no higher than #9-12 and Barkley might see around #17-20. I think that teams who reach beyond these parameters, will pay a price for their wishful thinking.
