I must say, I don't really agree with this. QBs taken in the 1st or 2nd have a much better chance of making it in the NFL IMO. They have time on there side. Guys taken later don't typically. It's much easier to go out and bring in guys who have been in other teams camps and try to continue to build on them rather then drafting guys and bringing them in to develop over a period of 3 to 4 years. I mean, your example of Brady is the exception rather then the rule IMO. Could it happen? Sure, it could happen but is this typical in the NFL? I don't think so. Time will tell with Smith. If he lands in the right situation, it could work out for him. Given the time to develope, he could become a QB who overcomes the size thing. Question is, will he be given that time? There are no assurances of that IMO. If he shows up in a camp ready to go and working well, then he might just get that chance. If he shows up in a camp like he did at his Pro Day or Combine, I don't know that a team might be willing to invest long term in that development.
