Andre Smith's Reach May Save Him

by JJ Cooper

If your'e looking for a breakout football Website that's come from nowhere to provide top-notch content, the 2008-2009 season winner would have to the National Football Post, which has quickly become a must-view site. The NFP is back at it again this week, swimming upstream against the Andre Smith stock-falling news to point out a reason that Smith won't fall as far as you may think.

Smith may be a fat tub of goo who apparently didn't spend much time working in the weight room in preparation for his pro day, but he has a giant asset (to go with his giant ass) that NFL teams will love. As the NFP points out, while Smith may be only 6-foot-4, he has the longest arms of any of the top tackle prospects this year. With his 35-5/8-inch reach, Smith has the long arms to help ensure he wins the battle of hand positioning against most defensive ends.
