      He seems genuine about it...but you just never know until the deadline.

      A horrendous decision imo, but I'm guessing the scouts told him he'd be a 3rd/4th round pick so he thinks he can improve his stock by going back for his senior year, which will add a lot more miles on his tires.

      He should come out and accept the fact he will be nothing more than a 3rd round pick.

            Speed isn't something a player can just drastically improve in one season.

            He will never run faster than a 4.5 at the combine, if he came out this year I'd say he would even run a 4.58 at the combine.

              You can get faster if you work at it.

                I disagree. He is maybe only 21 years old. Granted these men are very well trained athletes, but I've known many guys who, while done growing, don't actually develop until they're 22-24. It's really an amazing difference the fluidity and swiftness the body gains from this final stage of development. I've known guys who, with appropriate training, actually drop their 40 from sub-4.6 to the 4.4 range. it's just that all of a sudden it becomes SO much easier to run.
                and maybe he's spent years building mass and this year he works on speed because he's already got the mass. Reggie bush did that pre-draft.

                don't get me wrong, I'm not claiming this will happen to him, but it happens more often than a lot of people think. That also was an extreme example. Just keep in mind though that he is young yet. 21 is still a kid. We'll find out when he does come out.

                  I love when a stud junior comes back for his last year, it makes college football better. I will have to try and catch one of his games since Orlando is close.

                    I feel it is a good move in a business sense if he stays healthy. He may be a first or second rounder if he is in a draft that is not as deep.

                      Next year's runningback class has the potential to be even better.

                      It is just bad to put that kind of mileage on your tires and come back as O'Leary is burning this kid's career up.

                        Well he will improve as well so I wouldnt be to concerned about that. As for O'Leary, he wants to win for his team. It's not his concern about the next level.

                          Wow, didn't we have this discussion about a month back. It's not like Smith has been sitting on the couch eating doritos these last few years. I'm pretty sure he would have done the occasional speed work. He's not dropping .2 over 40 in 12 months, period.

                          If he does, then either the first or second time should be called into question (i.e. he was never that slow or never that fast).

                            How can he improve...he just led the NCAA in rushing and there isn't much upside with his game anyways.
