Saving Andre Smith

The common wisdom about players and agents is that if an agent tells a player he can get him drafted higher simply by virtue of having him as his agent, then the player should run the other way. This is what I have believed in the overwhelming majority of players, as has my colleague and partner at the Post, agent Jack Bechta.

However, something happened this week that slightly deflates that conventional wisdom.
