John Clayton on the Andre Smith pick:
Bengals owner Mike Brown would rather draft a top offensive lineman than a skill-position player. In 2002, Brown drafted left tackle Levi Brown instead of tight end Jeremy Shockey in the first round. So it shouldn't have been a surprise to see the Bengals take offensive tackle Andre Smith over wide receiver Michael Crabtree, despite Cincinnati's need at receiver after the loss of T.J. Houshmandzadeh in free agency.
Levi Brown? Really? Also, did Clayton even watch our team last year? Crabtree is of no use to us if we can't protect Palmer. I usually like Clayton but this is nitpicking at best.
