I keep telling people that BPA is curved with the QB position. If there's a Ray Lewis in the draft, but there's also a Troy Aikman, who do you take? Ray Lewis may be the better player, but Aikman provides far more to the team.
Same thing with Smith.
(not bashing Lewis btw, he's about as close as any ILB I've ever seen to sway my opinion on this)
