The Heisman Trophy has absolutely no real value in the NFL, especially at QB. It is strictly a reward for a highly successful college season. Troy Smith will be selected as a QB, sometime 3rd round or later. The main reason will be he is only 6'0" tall. In the NFL that is hard to overlook, and overcome.
If we still need a QB and he is there at some point on Day 2, I wouldn't mind the Cowboys considering him, but I doubt we will.
I agree and I'm predicting Smith will go in the 4th rd of the draft. I think he has a chance to develop into a very good QB. He is very accurate with his passes and does a very good job going through his progression and spreading the ball around
