Wilson's team fell apart due to Petrino. There are some minor character questions. As I've said repeatedly, every time I've seen Smith, he was far less than impressive.
Outside of this particular football forum, I can find no general consensus on any of the above players in regards to who is best suited for the NFL, let alone the #1 overall pick.
I hope that The Combines provide more insight and guys to begin to separate but there's no guarantee.
There isn't a viable alternative outside of the draft. Do you want to give up a pick or two for Alex Smith? What is a team really capable of with him at the helm?
