Can I just say this right now? Andre Smith is going to be a massive NFL failure. How do I know? Because come on, the guy went AWOL from the damn combine, he didn't have a good pro day, and he clearly doesn't seem to give a s*** about becoming a better player, or even remaining as good as he was in college.
But this just takes things to a whole new level.
Smith agreed this week to help out with the Midwest Lineman's Camp at Illinois Wesleyan, in Bloomington, Illinois. Only problem is he didn't go to Bloomington, Illinois. He went to Bloomington, Indiana. Smith was due at the camp on Monday morning, June 22. He arrived about 4:30 Tuesday afternoon. The camp ended on Wednesday.
Now, did he really get lost? Or did he just not give a crap about the camp that he said he'd attend? Hopefully the second one, because it only takes 4 hours to drive from Bloomington, Indiana to Bloomington, Illinois, not 36.
Anyway, this guy is either a complete idiot or the laziest millionaire ever and will absolutely suck in the NFL. In other words, I'm not shocked at all that the Bengals drafted him.
