I don't expect much at all out of him. I feel he can be easily replaced with someone else that has more upside.
i agree my friend, and am i the only one that laughed at your first sentence here? lol. unless he doms this year, it is very obvious smith saw something in him that we've yet to see come to fruition in the nfl, judging by his ridiculous trade-up for him.

His pass blocking is pretty good and he catches passes out of the backfield so he'd be a good 3rd down back. (We're not going to get a 3rd down back in the draft because it takes new guys a few years to get up to speed in reading blitzes.) He also returns punts.

I've only been able to find a couple highlight videos on him, but he looks like a guy who's a threat to take it to the house every time he gets the ball in his hands. Yeah, everyone looks good in highlight reels so take it for what it's worth.

Oh, and back on topic, I like the Hester re-signing. We now have a backup fullback who's been a starter for 4 years. What's wrong with that?
It makes too much sense for the Chargers to sign him. AJ will go after some guy that nobody has ever heard about before to make it seem like he found another diamond in the rough.
