Bullshit he is.
He's not even universally regarded as the highest graded tackle

Kiper came out and said it first, the parrotting masses started repeating him. Now the scouts and adults are in the room and suddenly Eric Fisher and Lane Johnson are building momentum. Guys like Floyd and Richardson are building momentum.
Joeckel is no more of a consensus 1.1 than Smith is. There is
no consensus 'highest graded' player in the draft.
That's why you tell the highest graded player crap to **** itself and take the guy that can most positively impact your football team.
Geno Smith remains that guy.
