    Hey Guys, this is who I would like to see us get in the 2nd round. I will give you part of PFW's scouting report: "Hits like a ton of Bricks and really unloads when he arrives. Tackles well. Has good football Intelligence and quickly reads and reacts and is able to locate the football. Lines up over the slot receiver at time's in 4 receiver sets and can move around well enough in the box to make plays. Is able to get over the top in deep coverage and shows nice ball skills. Will adjust to the ball in the air. Finished 2nd in nation in interceptions as a senior. Vocal leader. Really studies the game and it shows in his reactions. Is smart and well get defenders lined up. very tough and durable has not missed any time. plays with passion.". Downside: "Not very big and has thin lower body and does not have great playing speed or quite the range teams want in order to interchange their safeties". Doesn't this sound like what we need at FS?. I would try to trade up in the 2nd round for him and I believe Paul P was still at Syracuse so we might have a inside track.

    I've not seen anywhere that says Smith is truly expected to be a 2nd round pick. He's a top 10 rated FS in this draft, but that doesn't tend to translate to 2nd round. More likely 3rd or even 4th round depending on if teams view him as too skinny (thus fragile).

    I also started a tread about him and got shot down by most people because they said he was too slow. His pro day is today, hopefully he'll run well. He didn't do too well at the combine, lets hope he can redeem himself a little bit today.

    Everybody sacred of Allen because of his injuries, the PFW Book thinks he might not have the Body for the NFL.

    My hunch is that Dallas has an eye on him. I think he could be a great fit here potentially.
