I really like Sean Smith of Utah. He started out as a receiver and has good size, 6'3" 215, and nice hands. We could use a guy like him. Check out this video highlight of an interception he made against Wyoming:

If he is there in the 2nd round i would def grab him. He is athletic and i like the utah players a lot. He is a big strong DB which we need

I'm trying to get the right read on Sean Smith. Is he a CB or a S? I've seen him listed at both on different draft sites.

I'd take him in the 1st. One of my favorite players in the draft.

Would look to be a solid FS in the NFL. But, would you use a high pick on a FS? I would tend to think Parcells would go CB, LB or maybe even DT or WR before picking a FS. And he is definitely too slow to be a corner in the NFL at 4.5. I def like the guy though. And we do need a FS.

depends on his 40 time. He runs well, he'll shoot up the boards being a tall CB, he runs slow, he'll be in between the 2nd and 4th (runs slow, he'll be a safety who do fall)

Do we really want to draft another guy who we are not sure if he is going to be a Safety or a CB . . . I'm not feeling that after the problems we have had with Allen.

Allen's problem is not so much his physical ability as it is that he is not the sharpest tool in the shed. Smith is a FS in the NFL almost certainly. There are not very many 6-3 corners at the next level. I have seen him play a couple of games in person. Smith is huge without a doubt but I would be surprised if he played at his listed 215. I would think he was closer to 205 and he is plenty fast. I don't think anyone should think for a minute that he can come right in and start right away. I think he is a year away at least before he could be a starting level FS.

He reminds me of Bobby Taylor coming out of Notre Dame. He slipped to the 2nd round because teams weren't sure if he was a corner or a safety. Smith can play corner very well and at 6'3, 210 lbs. and running in the 4.3 or 4.4 range, we would be VERY lucky to get him in the second round. He could be the answer to the problems we've had this year with big receivers.

I will never understand why we thought it was a good idea to make Allen a CB in the first place. He came off of a serious hip injury which took away all of the fluidity in his turning.

Nope....he tried to run the INT out of the endzone. Doesn't appear to be a "head's up" player...

That's how 100+ yard pick six's happen. We need some ballhawks to look to get the ball and do something with it on defense.

I guess we will have to see what he runs at the combine. If he can run in the low 4.4s or better, he could be seen as a CB. Although I still see him as a FS because of his height. He would trouble sticking with the shorter WRs in the league.

You grade them the way you want...I'll grade them my way...

I like guys that simply fall on fumbles, knock down 4th down passes, and kneel down on INTs in the endzone...I've seen more problems than 100 yard run backs doing things like that...

6'4" 219

one of the few db's to run sub 4.5

the dolphins will be LUCKY if he's there at 25

Yeah I really hate it when Ed Reed and Antonio Cromartie make INT's around the goal line and run it 100 yards the other way for a score. The Dolphins don't want to have any cornerbacks who can do this. :(

Sean Smith is the top safety prospect in the draft and will without a doubt go in the 1st round.

I put Sean Smith at CB for at least 3 years before I even think of asking him to go to FS.

His 40 time was better than Asomugha.....and people where saying Aso was to tall at 6-2 to play corner....now he makes 45 mill for 3 years.

If a track meet breaks out at half time....Smith might be in trouble...But I am hoping the Steelers take him at 32....if he even makes it that far.

I am all for Sean Smith in the second round if he is there.

It doesn't matter we need both.

But unlike Allen, Sean Smith can play both positions effectively. If he is around in the 2nd, I would definitely draft him with the first of our two. He is lights out.

:lol: Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Offense-minded defenders are a rare breed and if there's a chance to land one you better not hesitate. If we do draft Smith hopefully he's not the type who would try to return a int/fumble on the last play of a close game we're about to win. He's a good prospect and they say he's a confident trash-talker so when is that ever a bad thing?

the thing with Aso was he never played CB. He was a safety in high school, and at Cal. Aso even said in a recent interview that his heart sank when Oakland told him they were drafting him to play CB.

But yeah, Smith has pretty much played himself into a top 15 pick, and we have to take him at 25 if he's there.

Smith measured 6'4" 214 pounds at the combine. He ran a 4.47 in the 40 yard dash.

And Jason Allen also played both positions effectively in college . . . at a bigger school than Utah . . . this means nothing until we see him on Sundays.

Jason Allen also put up one of the best combines for a DB of all time . . . it is all about transition.

I think if we are looking at this guy, its to get him one on one with Randy Moss.

a tall DB to cancel out tall WR. im all for it with 44, only because i doubt he can play corner consistantly.

I think we try to trade down in the first to get another pick, and take Smith if still available, and he ran that int to the 31 yd line.



Nope....he tried to run the INT out of the endzone. Doesn't appear to be a "head's up" player...

Butler from Uconn is the guy I keep hearing about that we supposedly are interested in. I now could see us drafting two CB's if Goody not resigned.

Butler or Mocho Harris. would love either one.
Butler is quicker, more of a cover. but is short.
Harris is big physical, but not as fast as elite cover.
both would help
