Exactly. I can't understand why Smith is so maligned by Rams fans.

It's a valid point that he lost his LT position pretty quickly but he also had some decent performance for a year or two as a RT. I'll take any good production over none...

He clearly turned out as a sub par pick. But worst ever? I'm not seeing it.

because I do think his desire could be question after his injuries. But I don't know about worst, to me, gotta be Lawrence Phillips, bu Smith is right there with Greg Robinson.

Part of it was both Smith and G-Rob were the "supreme physical specimens" and supposed both had mean streak. They were supposed to be the left tackle for a decade. With Smith we didn't see the knee injury than cemented in our minds he was hurt. Maybe kind of a concussion dismissal bias by all of us Rams fans

I dunno, just spitballing here.

I do recall his desire was questioned.

But in fairness to him, GRob has also had his desire and love of football questioned which is even worse. At least in Smith's case, a guy lost his desire after being hurt several times. IOW, there is some logical reason there.

There is a lot of similarity between Smith and GRob for all of the reasons you list. Ultimately, I don't have too much of a problem with Smith being there with GRob. I just can't grasp his being ranked worse.

I mentioned an especially serious neck injury that led to Smith being carted off the field. It was scary at the time.

Word is, that's the injury that led him to lose any heart for the game.

Wasn't injuries plural, it was that particular one.
