Smith is an undersized, but productive cornerback who is an outstanding playmaker. He displays good route recognition and is a determined defender. He’s effective facing the action, locates the ball quickly and possesses excellent closing speed and ball skills that allow him to turn defense into offense. He is a very instinctive defender who has a great sense.
Tom Marino's Ranking
#45 out of 501 overall
#4 at CB
Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis Nice value here for a team that needs help at cornerback. He'll compete for the starting job that was vacated when veteran CB Dre' Bly was released earlier this year.
