At this point in time, it is relevant. It just happened a few months ago. These guys haven't yet played a pre-season game, let alone, a regular season game.

The reason why players were passed over or taken where they were taken will matter until they've actually started and played in the league. Once they've proven they belong, they'll be rewarded. If they don't, they'll be cut.

But as of today, why a guy slipped or didn't slipped is relevant.

The draft is an educated guess. A guess based on research, behavior, performance on the field, work ethic and other intangibles. Given the recent success of other second round QB's (Dalton and Kaepernick), Smith may thrive in the NFL. But for whatever reason, NFL front offices didn't feel he was worthy of a first round pick.

At this point in time, that's all that matters is that Smith wasn't deemed worthy of a first round pick.
