From GM adamriggs: There are a few players that are still on the board that could help the Dolphins out. However, with the departure of starting CB Andre Goodman to the Broncos, there is a big hole at the CB position. Also, at the end of this season, three more CBs will be unrestricted FA. There are a lot of people that believe Sean Smith could be the best CB to come out in this draft and the fact that he is available with the 25th pick makes this a no-brainer for me.
As our own TedBartlett905 said concerning Smith, “The best CB prospect, even if most people aren't hip to it yet. I am personally certain of this, so write it down, and call me on it later, if I am wrong. You don't find 6'3", 215-pound, fast, fluid guys who are strong and have great ball skills too often.” I find it interesting that Smith went to Utah as a running back, got moved to wide receiver, and finally moved to cornerback. This shows he has some versatility and will be able to adapt to anything the League throws at him.
Commish's Thoughts: Smith is pretty much guaranteed to come into the game with a chip on his shoulder, after being overlooked for the bigger schools, and then slipping in as an afterthought for many scouting programs. Never underestimate what that kind of a chip can do for someone's play, and when it is coupled with Smith's speed, and rare size, it could be a top-notch combination in the NFL.
