I feel like I should be an NFL scout sometimes. I wrote this on March 12th comparing the Eagles situation at #4 this year to the Eagles situation at #2 in 1999. I didn’t particularly compare Smith and McNabb, but I could see the parallels obviously. I actually think Smith is a better pocket passer coming out of college than McNabb.
Now, Reid and the Chiefs, who have the first overall pick in the draft, are comparing Smith to McNabb…and we all know about Andy and Donovan’s love affair.
