Most people want the Nebraska CB, a LB or an OT...but what about CB Jimmy Smith?


I really like this kid. He's a beast in press coverage, something that Schwartz and co. covet in a cornerback. He's tall, fast, strong, and just absolutely balls like some of the best currently in the NFL, even drawing comparisons to Nnamdi Asomugha. The main problem with this kid...off the field issues.

I am vouching for this kid though, even though he may have failed 4 drug tests in his first 3 yrs of college and had numerous run-ins with the law. Of course Charles Rogers comes to mind when I type this, but that was a different regime that handled that situation pretty poorly. I don't think Smith will be a problem in Detroit, with guys like Suh, KVB, Stafford, or even C.J, he will learn to act like a professional.  Schwartz also seems to know how to handle players and their personalities as well.

 

Jimmy Smith has everything you could possibly want from a #1 corner. Pair him up with Chris Houston and Alphonso Smith and you get three young corners with a lot of potential and a solid cornerback corps. With the D-line being a sick as it is and with Levy coming into his own, adding a new linebacker or two wouldn't be as a big deal if the secondary and d-line were dominant.

 

I'm adding a poll to see what player you would like to see the Lions draft at #13 and feel free to comment on why you would or wouldn't pick Jimmy Smith, my pick for #13.
