Default Anthony Smith-speed of a lineman?

i was cruisin though the world wide web today and i fell upon anthony smiths draft information. most safeties run around a 4.4-4.5 in their 40yd dash. smith ran a 4.7, that kinda explains why he got beat deep so often. i tried to look up the website i was on but i cant remember the name, they send me emails now so ill know soon.

He's not fast, but I wouldn't say that's the reason he got beat deep. The times I remember him being beat he was actually very close to the receiver, but he just didn't make the play cause he maybe sucks at coverage.

maybe speed influenced, but he has to work on his coverage skills more than anything

I just don't think he's any good in coverage. He's Lee Flowers Jr. basically.

He was a strong saftey in college... They tend to play more run that FS... I am not going to blame the kid for having his position changed because we have Troy.

some of the plays he got beat deep on he bit of a fake and almost caught back up to make the play. a little more maturity and maybe he wont bite on the fakes and will make good plays.

speed isnt his problem.. he is over aggressive and it costs him. i thought there was a story about his poor combine numbers though. i cant remember for sure though.

He only got beat because of reading the play incorrectly. He was awesome with all his big hits, now nobody likes him??? Come on people.... He's more of an inexperienced Darren Perry

who cares.

Ryan Clark- Does ANYONE even know who this guy is!?!?!??!?!?!?!


Uhh, besides the GOOD A. Smith going out of season for injury (which made our run D suffer horribly) ... easily the biggest injury we had we R. Clark at Safety.

He's what, 27? We have awhileeeeeeeeeeeeee to groom A. Smith ... if he even gets the gig.

Ryan Clark, although not flashy, not a big hitter, not a ballhawker, not going to turn any heads on sheer athletic ability.

but the man is Solid. ALL AROUND. and when you play w/ a Big time safety opposite you like Troy P. WHO ISS ALL THOSE THINGS (flashy, athletic, ...etc) .... you don't HAVE to go out and try and prove something. You arent ASKED to make the big play.

You just gotta not screw it up.

I don't know anthony smiths 40 time, nor do I care.

I do know that we were ranked #1 in pass defense until Clark went out.

Then it was all down hill from there. Not helped at all by Aaron smith leaving for the year.
