I really hope Jared Smith at least makes the Practice Squad. I guess the great thing about Cable being so aggressive with switching guys from DT to OG is that you can always stash the kid away on the Practice Squad because other teams might be hesitant to pick up a guy where you have to decide whether to keep the project going or switch him back to DT. I liked Smith as a DT from the limited stuff I saw from him, and plus I've gotta root for the small schools in the northeast like New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Maine. The Northeast is my second favorite sleeper part of the country, far behind the Pacific Northwest of course.
It'll be interesting to see how quickly Smith will take to the transition. That'll really show us how special Sweezy is for even being passable out there with such little experience. I like the idea of stashing him on the Practice Squad for a year and coaching him up, and eventually having him as Sweezy's backup and as the Long Snapper since Gresham will be an FA after this year.
I liked McGrath to make the roster last season and to take the LS job as well as the #3 TE job. I guess I just hate Clint for no apparent reason. I really shouldn't and don't because I've never seen him F up a snap. He's JP Darche 2.0 for now. But for some reason I keep wanting this versatile position player/long snapper. What can I say, I'm greedy. Having said all that, I'm rooting for Fells or Willson over McGrath this year. Sorry Seth, I mean Sean
