16. Reggie Smith, CB/S, 6-0/205, Oklahoma
Smith is instinctive and competitive. He is aggressive and consistently shows the ability to break up passes and deliver violent hits after the catch.

Haven't heard much discussion on him. Anybody watch a lot of Oklahoma this year? 16th ranked junior (all positions) coming out according to Sporting News. The ability to "deliver violent hits" intrigues me :)

10th pick is too high for him and he'll probably be gone by the time we pick in the 2nd round.

CB, Reggie Smith (Jr.)
Draft Projection: 1st Round
Height: 6-0 | Weight: 196

Smith is an outstanding athlete who covers a lot of ground in the secondary. He's a versatile defender who can play corner or safety at the next level. He's an athletic centerfielder with tremendous ball skills. He displays great awareness in coverage and plays physically against bigger receivers. He defends the run very well and takes good angles in pursuit. He diagnoses the action instantly and possesses a good sense of timing. Smith is a top-20 selection in next April's draft if he decides to forego his senior season. His versatility and playmaking ability in the secondary is hard to find and are skills that teams crave.

I think he's going to be excellent in a few years, but probably won't give you much his rookie year. That is a general problem for rookie CBs, so patience is needed. Hopefully we can address corner in free agency
