Smith is also 6-4 258, not 6-7 230.

That is an enormous difference.

He's skinny, and has injury problems. And as others have pointed out once an OG or OT get their hands on him he's done. The next time he disengages from a block will be the 1st time he disengages from a block

I wouldn't touch this guy until the late 1st early 2nd round.[/QUOTThat guy Aldon Smith is 258 w/ 19.5 sacks I dont think 10 pounds will make that much of a difference especially when its going to be muscle
Aldon Smith has thus far proven ineffective without Justin Smith in the middle. I think Aldon is a system player benefiting from the players around him. Not saying he isn't a decent player, but he is a bit overrated. He's still bigger than Dion Jordan however.

I am not high on him at all. He seems brittle and not enough of an all around player. If we trade back and get him later on, then maybe, but let's not forget that you have to find a trade partner. That's not a guarantee.
