Now that the Colorado Buffaloes have two new first round draft picks and three new players (for a total of 16) in the NFL, I thought it would be nice to look back at the NFL weekend each Tuesday to see how each of our Buffaloes fared. If you guys saw any of the games and have any comments on the play of any of these guys make sure and leave a note in the comments.

Jimmy Smith - CB - Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore had a bye week 
According to ESPN's AFC North Blog, Smith may still not be ready to return next week

RAVENS: Cornerback Jimmy Smith, the team's first-round draft pick, acknowledged that he's unlikely to play Sunday because of a high ankle sprain, and left guard Ben Grubbs will probably return as long as he doesn't have a setback with his injured right toe.

Nate Solder - LT - New England Patriots 
New England defeated New York Jets, 30-21
Did a Nate Solder tackle help win the game for the Patriots? Sounds like it:

But it's Light and Solder who ended up saving the day for the Patriots. Light dives at Cromartie's feet and forces him to step out of bounds. That play was assisted by Solder -- who came all the way from his back side of the field at his right tackle spot - as Cromartie slowed up a bit when he saw Solder, who was given credit for the tackle, on the play.
