What worries me about Smith is not his abilities, but his head. He needs to realize his job is safety, not linebacker. But, if he could ever figure out how to control his aggresiveness and still be affecting at stopping the run, he could be a really good one.
Well you can't leave a DB in coverage for very long and expect success. I figure with Smith, the time that he's effective is even less. With Troy's ridiculous closing speed, maybe Troy should play FS and AS should move to SS..
