Yeah its a safety...Smith.

I wonder if the Pats will go Kai Parham in the 3rd...the LB field is very thin now.

Anthony Smith

Strengths

Anthony might be one of the most complete safeties in this draft. He is a head up, wrap up, squeeze and drive tackler. He is a smart player that is like a coach out on the field and he shows excellent leadership qualities. Anthony biggest strengths are his burst to the ball, instincts and hands to make the interception. Anthony is a playmaker and I would take him any day on my team.


Needs to Improve

Anthony does not have the pure speed needed to be a cover safety. He needs to keep the play in front of him. He will be more at home in a two deep zone defense. His quick burst to the play should be more impacting and he will get a lot of interceptions for you if a team that uses a two deep zone safety defense drafts him.


Bottom Line
Anthony is a playmaker. He loves to play football. He loves the hitting and the tackling and the mental portion of the game. Anthony makes up for his lack of pure speed by being in the right position and taking the right angles and being decisive in his play on the field. He is a playmaker and when the ball is in the air - as far as he is concern it belongs to him. He will be an excellent special teams player because like I said before - he loves to play. Anthony is one of those players that play?s faster then he times. He is a football player not a track star. I bet when the other players were working on their forty times he was in the film room looking at his next opponent. As far as I?m concerned Anthony is too much of a playmaker not to be picked in on the first day of the draft but it is not unusually for safeties to last longer. Here is the difference ? Anthony is not just a safety. He is a playmaker and that is a big difference when you?re thinking about drafting players to make your team. He is not just a player that is going to come in a do a good job. Anthony is a difference maker.

I just posted a link in his thread I just made, gives his profile.

Guess they figured Between Ryan Clark and Mike Logan we needed some more help. It makes sense in that perspective

Interesting pick. The bio doesn't like his speed but he appears to always be in the right place.

Yahoo has a pretty cool section where they show highlights of the players chosen.

Check it out.
