BIOGRAPHY: Former Utah transfer awarded All-Conference honors last season after posting 54/8/8. Started six games with the Utes in .05 and totaled 27 tackles.
POSITIVES: Opportunistic cornerback with excellent hands and overall ball skills. Fluid moving in reverse, is quick transitioning to run with opponents and has an explosive break to the action. Possesses a burst of closing speed, gets vertical to defend passes.
NEGATIVES: Prefers to side-shuffle down the field and is very quick out of his backpedal. Does not display top-end speed and gets beaten deep by opponents.
ANALYSIS: An undersized ball-hawking cornerback who works best facing the action, Smith is a nickel back in a zone system with starting potential.
