Smitshon was very productive at Kansas, where he had 253 tackles, 6.5 for loss, 6 interceptions, and 17 pass breakups. He has good speed, is a sure fire tackler, good in coverage, a hard hitter, and very experienced. He is also a defensive play maker, and a tough nosed played. He is undersized a bit. With that said, I see Smithson as a late day 3 pick.
