Yesterday we told you about Howard Eskin, a radio personality in Philadelphia, informing fans in Baltimore that he believed John Harbaugh did not want the Ravens to draft cornerback Jimmy Smith. That story has since been picked up by ProFootballTalk.com and drew national attention, so much so that Sports Illustrated’s Peter King disputed Eskin’s comments in a couple of tweets he posted today.
“That story about John Harbaugh not wanting Jimmy Smith? Wrong. Totally wrong,” King tweeted. He followed up:
Jimmy Smith spent 2 hrs w/Harbaugh, alone, before the draft, and told people internally after the meeting he really liked the kid.
King’s credibility goes unmatched, while it appeared that Eskin was making assumptions about Harbaugh’s personality.King’s credibility goes unmatched, while it appeared that Eskin was making assumptions about Harbaugh’s personality.0
