Andre Smith, OL, Alabama

Smith and fellow SEC offensive tackle Michael Oher (Ole Miss) once led the way in what has always been thought of as an extremely strong offensive linemen draft class in 2009. The former Alabama standout was named his team's Offensive Player of the Year as a sophomore and was a 2007 Coaches First-Team All-SEC selection. An ankle injury kept him out of the Crimson Tide's season opener against Clemson, but Smith bounced back to lead Nick Saban and company to the SEC Championship Game and the Sugar Bowl. Smith is a massive presence at 6'4'' and 340 pounds, but what sets him apart is his footwork and quickness. Rarely does a lineman of Smith's size move with the agility he does. Durability should not become too much of an issue, as Smith started every single game at left tackle in Tuscaloosa as a sophomore. The off-season, however, has not gone smoothly. Smith's work ethic has been called into question and leaving the combine early did not help. That's the main reason why he has been surpassed by OTs such as Jason Smith and Eugene Monroe. Still, Smith's talent is undeniable and he will be a first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Prediction: 1st Round

Who cares where he's drafted. He is the second coming of Keith Mccants. For those of you who don't know who this is google his name. Smith would be be better served by playing guard in the pros.
