This week's Sports Illustrated with Robert Griffin III on the cover has a mock draft which has Irish safety Harrison Smith as the No. 32 and final pick of the first round, to the Super Bowl champ New York Giants.
Michael Floyd is projected No. 10 to the Buffalo Bills.
If both do go in the first round, it would be the first time since 1994 the Irish would have two players taken in the first round. In 1994 it was Bryant Young (7th), Aaron Taylor (16th) and Jeff Burris (27th).
I saw this too. As a Giants fan, I'd love it. But I've seen other mock drafts that have him going from mid-2nd, to early 3rd. Have also seen Floyd goin anywhere from 6 or 7, to 16. Put the blindfold on tight, spin around three times, and throw the dart. Good luck now, ya hear.

Todd McShay on ESPN Sports Center:
"Harrison Smith is a player that is kind of in that (first-round) fringe. The Notre Dame safety is so consistent and so instinctive. Yes, I know he doesn't have elite range and athleticism, but he can cover the deep middle of the field, he comes up and hits in support, he's a playmaker, and he shows up every single day with the proper work ethic ... the angles, studying the tape and all the little things.
"I think he's going to be a very solid pro for about a decade and the type of player that can be the leader of the defense."

Had to Kill Mcshay To say that. I saw him on ESPN also
I still don't understand the whole "he doesn't have elite range and athleticism" thing. Isn't it McShay's job to at least peruse the Combine results?
Just texted Smith to tell him about the SI.com mock draft and he said, "Haha, don't get me thinking first round, man."
McShay added that the Baltimore Ravens is a team that has safety as one of its needs and the franchise could potentially use the 29th pick on Smith if he was to go in the last few picks of the first round.
