Have know clue. But news out of the combine today wasn't very good. Per SI.com

Notes

It's been a bizarre few days for Alabama offensive tackle Andre Smith, considered by most to be a top five pick. Immediately before the second group of offensive linemen were about to start their workout, an official announcement was made stating Smith had left the combine headquarters unannounced. After a long search, Smith was found 30 minutes before the workout began. The announcement went on to say Smith and his agent were giving conflicting stories as to the reason of his disappearance. Sources later said Smith's interviews with teams have been going horribly. He's been inappropriately dressed and has been giving a number of conflicting statements as to why he was choosing not to workout at the combine. Several offensive line coaches have already suggested Smith be removed from their team's draft board and there's no doubt his draft stock is falling.

Goat, I know you were interested in team interviews of Andre Smith. The kid is butchering his future right now apparently:

SMITH’S STOCK TAKING A HIT FOR REASONS UNRELATED TO WORKOUT

Posted by Mike Florio on February 21, 2009, 9:25 p.m.


As if the bizarre departure of Alabama tackle Andre Smith from Indianapolis didn’t raise enough questions about his pro prospects, some of the things Smith did and said in Indy might have done even more damage.
According to Tony Pauline of SI.com, Smith had a bad round of interviews on Friday.
“Smith’s interviews with teams have been going horribly,” Pauline reports. “He’s been inappropriately dressed and has been giving a number of conflicting statements as to why he was choosing not to workout at the combine. Several offensive line coaches have already suggested Smith be removed from their team’s draft board and there’s no doubt his draft stock is falling.”
Though high-end tackles create a lower percentage of busts than positions like quarterback and receiver, few tackles have had such a bad experience at the Scouting Combine. As a result, anyone who recommends that the team use a high first-round pick on Smith needs to have a high degree of job security — or needs to be right.

What is up with this guy? It sounds like he's mentally falling apart.

Hopefully we are doing the same. We can't afford to miss on an overweight, head case at # 13.

Re: Database Update: Consensus Projections, DE, OT, and LB ranking links

Man, one wrong word and you go from a can't miss prospect to a bum who can't play ball. I know teams want to pick a starter with their first round pick but to dump the guy because his interviews were inconsistent, are they looking for priests or NFL players. I think the combine gets too much emphasis. But thats good news for us, we can pick him up because the kid canplay, and play well.

Charley Casserly ripped him, supposedly he skipped the combine to go to 2 other workouts and waited till the last minute to inform the combine people. Charley basically said BS, why wait till the last minute, he said his agent took the bullet for him.

If that's the real story then I don't see what the big deal is.

Re: Database Update: Consensus Projections, DE, OT, and LB ranking links

Not sure which thread I sld post it up but I guess here is fine due to the comment below:

- Orakpo said that the Redskins talked to him about being a SAM (strong-side) linebacker.

Redskins Tidbits via PreDraft/Twitter - Redskins Insider

Perhaps Orakpo is in Redskins' plans?

Andre Smith still performs on the field. Right now he's just a little immature and maybe a bit scatterbrained, but he's not a problem child running amok of the law

For any Terps fans/alumni, did you guys see Heyward-Bey's 40 time? Glad to see he's doing well. Makes me wish we had picked up just one receiver last year and picked him up this year. Oh well.

Not 100% positive, but I believe that in addition to the aforementioned Andre Smith and Brian Orakpo we also met with Jarron Gilbert, Alex Mack, and Max Unger this weekend
