Cliché, I know, but it would be so great to get to sit and talk with Alphonso Smith. These are a few of the questions I'd be dying to know...

So, how absolutely mind-blowingly amazing is it to be a FIRST-ROUND PICK in the NFL draft? Congrats!

What was it like being on a Wake Forest team during its turnaround, of sorts, from a kicking stone to a contender/champion of the ACC?

What characteristics, if any, did you see from the players and staff on that first-year before-the-turnaround Wake team that you also see on this STL team?

How’s the rookie hazing up in STL? Is it bad?

What’s a PG-13 example of something the vets have done to you or one of your fellow rookies? What’s the worst you ever hazed a freshman football player at Wake?

Are you scared of going up against Steven Jackson every day in training-camp? Twice a day? Every day?

Who are you most looking forward to covering this season in the NFL?

Why didn’t your college teammate DJ Boldin get drafted higher in the draft? He’s awesome, AND Anquan’s brother!
