Another R6 Find?
- Check out the article at patriots.com about our R6 pick, DL/NT LeKevin
Smith. This kid appears to have a great head on his big shoulders. Could he
be another late round "find" for BB/Pioli? I'm hoping so. I really like his
I confess that I paid virtually no attention to any info about him following
the draft. But, after reading this article, I have to put him my list of
guys to watch in camp, and add him to my "My Man" list.
- I like what his college coach had to say about him "He's a good athlete who is very smart. He really knows the game of football." Sounds like a 'N.E. Patriots" type prospect that will have 'some success' to go with his 'little bit of height', (paraphrasing BB).

"The gospel of the monarchical patriotism is: 'The King can do no wrong.' We have adopted it with all its servility, with an unimportant change in the wording: 'Our country, right or wrong!' We have thrown away the most valuable asset we had - the individual's right to oppose both flag and country when he believed them to be in the wrong. We have thrown it away; and with it, all that was really respectable about that grotesque and laughable word, Patriotism."--Mark Twain

Here's a bit from Smith's Past that somehow got overlooked:
Husker Smith cited in incident
BY HILARY KINDSCHUH / Lincoln Journal Star
University of Nebraska-Lincoln football player Le Kevin Smith was
cited for third-degree assault and disturbing the peace after

discomfort and redness.

visit with him and talked to him privately about a lot of things,"
Callahan said. "We don't condone any type of behavior of that nature.
I think we all learned a valuable lesson about respect." Callahan
said Smith already has faced internal punishment that will remain
Callaghan, the Raiders former coach, spoke of respect and lessons
Gary Lacey, Lancaster County attorney, said Tuesday his office was
reviewing reports and hadn't decided if it would prosecute the case.
No court appearance for Smith is scheduled until Oct. 28.
Callahan said during his weekly press conference that he had a "long
visit" with Smith.
"Certainly we respect everybody that has a job to do in their roles
in life," Callahan said. "That's a part of growing up and a part of
understanding people, and how to relate to people and how to get
"I think we all learned a valuable lesson in that respect, whether
it's one of the janitors in the building . . . a parking officer,
whoever. Everyone deserves that respect and dignity."
