|What is the upside and downside of releasing Alex Smith? (USATSI)|
Here are Smith's Over/Unders:
Passing yards -- 3,000
Touchdowns -- 18.5
Interceptions -- 10.5.
Smith should flourish in Andy Reid's system. And we all know how much Reid loves to throw. In San Francisco, Smith played 16 games twice, throwing for 3,150 yards (2011) and 2,890 yards (2006). The over looks good if Smith stays healthy.
Smith has yet to throw more than 18 touchdown passes, but he's come close three times. We'll go over on that one, too.
As for picks, let's go over again. The Chiefs will trail often, Smith will be forced to throw, and that's when mistakes happen.
With Kansas City set at quarterback, Bovada.lv pegs the Chiefs as -300 favorites to take left tackle Luke Joeckel with the No. 1 overall pick. You get 2-to-1 odds (+200) on Kansas City taking anyone else.
