Being a 5 Star recruit has nothing to do with being a n NFL draft pick. At best, the relationship is spurious, and at worse, non existent.

As to Jason Smith, he very well could be another Mike Mamamula or Tony Mandarich. Another big guy who impressed scouts with his performance in a t-shirt and shorts.

One of my favorite annual debates, and it gets at the underlying mission of the recruiting services. Is it to project talent or to baseline talent? I believe Scout and Rivals aim to baseline talent, measuring a player's current talent level versus projecting how he might be developed. If that is the case, then measurement against draft status is fun but ultimately meaningless
