Khosravi: Smith will go #1 or #2 in the draft
Continued from page 8
University of Oregon's
Akili Smith is believed to
be the best talent in this
year’s NFL draft,
according to many scouts
around the league.
dinator Jeff Tedford, learning the
offense and refining his skills. Af­
ter a long and mentally draining
summer, Smith finally had learned
Oregon’s complex offense. His se­
nior season was a result of his hard
work on the field during the spring
and summer.
Every time Smith has been given
a chance in his football career, he
has earned the respect he re­
ceived. Never having been billed
as a can’t-miss player like Peyton
Manning, Smith has battled hard
to get where he is, much harder
than most people know. The road
for Smith has been a long, rocky
and, at times, lonely one.
For Smith, that long road traveled
is finally beginning to pay off. Smith
will be picked number one or two
overall in the upcoming draft, and
although outsiders may still wonder
about his chances for success,
coaches who have worked with him
have no doubt about Smith’s
chances and work ethic. And
Smith’s hard work and on-field play
will pay their faith back many times
over in the long run.
