Deion Sanders says Lions shouldn't gamble on Jimmy Smith

Interesting article: http://www.freep.com/article/20110427/SPORTS01/110427017/Deion-Sanders-Lions-Don-t-gamble-cornerback?odyssey=mod|mostview

Asked about Colorado cornerback Jimmy Smith, a top talent with plenty of off-field baggage, Sanders said, “You don’t gamble that high. One thing about picking that high, you don’t gamble, especially that cornerback position. Because if you do your homework and your due diligence, that can help you for the next five to 10 years. A corner’s going to play a long time, and then a corner with some size can go to safety so he can help you in the latter part of his career. You really got to concentrate on a lot of things when you’re taking a pick that high.”
