The Bayou Bulletin: Spotlight 1 of 6: Will Smith
The 2004 NFL Draft is officially over! Done! Finished! Pack up the kids and pick the clothes up from school! The New Orleans Saints picked up six players in this year’s draft: Will Smith, Devery Henderson, Courtney Watson, Rodney Leisle, Mike Karney, and Colby Bockwoldt. These strapping young men will be the newest additions to the Saints roster, having fulfilled their hopes and dreams to officially become players in the National Football League.

The sad part is, from here on out, it’s going to get very, very, boring. The draft is over. Free agents will float hither and dither, but until preseason comes along, there’s not too much to look at. I mean come, I’m in football mode now and it’s what, April?

But never fear, my black and gold comrades! To alleviate the painful lull of the off-season, I shall sacrifice countless minutes to provide you with a weekly, in-depth view of each of our draft pickups! And who better to start with than the top pick of New Orleans, Ohio State DE Will Smith, the 18th overall pick in the draft. So what’s the deal with this guy? Why him, out of all the available players? I know that’s a question asked about every player drafted, so that’s the question I’ll go ahead and answer.

Smith is a very special player because of several key attributes. I have no doubt these attributes are why he was selected, so I will take the time to evaluate each of them. If you read this carefully, maybe even six or seven times, you’ll come to understand their usefulness.
