I appear to be in the vast minority in these parts, but Ive never understood the fascination with Rod Smith. Everyone likes to talk about his freak athleticism and crazy speed, but I have never seen these things manifested on the field. I haven't noticed Meyer or any of the coaches ever mentioning him with the fastest players, like when they are always talking about Dontre and Samuel. And then there are the Eddie comparisons that a lot of people have made, which seems almost blasphemous.
Don't get me wrong, Im sure he is a good athlete and would see playing time at a lot of schools, Ive just never seen anything as impressive as a lot of people here seem to have noticed. Not to mention the ball security problems. Anyway, not being a smartass, just my 2 cents.
