Biography: Three-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Led team in tackles as a senior with 108. Junior totals included 77/2/3. Posted 90 tackles as a sophomore.
Positives: Adequately sized, run-defending safety best playing downhill. Shows quickness in his overall game, covers a large amount of area on the field, and uses his hands to protect himself. Makes plays laterally. Aggressive, puts his shoulder pads into ball-carriers and goes for the knockout blow.
Negatives: Lined up at outside linebacker as a senior and pass coverage duties were kept to a minimum. Marginal ball skills prior to his senior season.
Analysis: Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith is a tough, aggressive safety who lays it on the line to stop opponents. Possessing marginal size/speed numbers, he's potentially a ninth defensive back but must make his mark on special teams.
