Do you think he'd come out this year, and if he did what round would he go?

He's a bit overrated because he's gotten a lot of interceptions. You can't go by stats alone when looking at a prospect. In the few games I've seen Smith (I'm thinking 3 or 4), he hasn't been overly impressive. At 5'9", it could hold him back in the NFL. I can't think of one starting CB smaller than 5'10". He doesn't have great speed either, mid to low 4.4. I think he's a borderline Day One pick if he comes out this year.

Smith is a very intense and physical corner. He reminds me of Chris Houston a bit because he's so small yet feisty. He attacks the ball really well and loves closing on receivers if they run curls or hitches. I've never really seen him cover a deep ball, but if he has trouble staying with receivers he could do fine in a Cover 2, even as a nickelback.

he gave up 8 catches and 117 yards to Calvin Johnson who has an 8 or 8 1/2 inch height and 44 lb differential.
