Because Smith is only an RFA instead of Wesley being a UFA, I could see that pick being in the #31 - #40 range. (also to note, the Wesley pick was a year later 2nd round pick, not a 2nd pick of that year)

I think your "leadership" comparison argument is rendered moot, seeing how Boughner was also a co-captain in Calgary.
