Paul Daugherty says give Andre Smith a chance.
Classic quote by Bengals offensive line coach: "He didn't run around the cones that well. But he does two things well: pass block and run block."
Chick Ludwig says drafting Andre Smith was the smart and right thing.
James Walker, who spent most of his time projecting that the Bengals would select B.J. Raji or Michael Oher, says that the "Bengals take another risk."
Andre Smith was within the top two on the Bengals board.
"He was in our top two," Marvin Lewis said. "And when you get to this day, you stay true to your board."
While fine with Smith, Zane would have liked Eugene Monroe better, who was still available.
