DP - Alphonso Smith bringing ballhawk style - Jeff Legwold
Alphonso has been active in practice - returning punts and kicks, working as the top nickelback and stepping in for Champ at times. McDaniels says what makes a cornerback is not his size or hands; it's his vision and anticipation.

Just when everyone at MHR is ready to boycott him, PK comes through with some non-regurgitated writing. He allows that Orton's INTs may have been the result of him not being used to having so much pass protection, that Alphonso Smith might make everyone forget the 1st-rounder Denver traded, and that no team wants the 1st, 2nd or 3rd pick in the draft.
