He's maybe the only player I'd consider trading up in the 2nd round to get, assuming he doesn't go in the 1st. I know he's being looked at as a cornerback by some teams but I see him as a free safety who can lock up man-to-man if needed. He should be able to lock-up tight ends and big, possession-type receivers, no problem.
I agree 100%..The way I look at it is Delmas or Smith are going to 35 to New England. I doubt very much that either go before New England's first rounder unless someone moves up. Their both in that 34-40 range IMO and New England won't go Delmas with their first rounder, than Smith with thier 35th pick, so that leaves one of them up for grabs. I'll take either, it doesn't matter to me. If Delmas/Smith slip by 35 then I make a move to grab em..it's only moving potentially 11 spots.
Smith has stated that he would play S if the team wanted him too and would work on whatver he needed to excel. You can tell in that tape that he's best suited at S where he can play over the top or in the center of the field. I would actually place him all over the field if I was Wade. Have the Corner blitz on some plays and have Sean play man to man on the reciever.
