Dude, this team has dick for veteran talent at QB ..or had dick until we traded for Smith. We had to have a QB for veteran leadership, stop-gap play and if anything backup play.
If I had to guess I feel mor secure in saying that they traded for A. Smith knowing the QB they are going to draft is going to need some bench time. It isn't like Andrew Luck is the pick this year.
