2 61 Sean Smith
CB Utah

After swapping 2nd round picks with the Colts, and adding Indy's 5th round pick in the process, the Dolphins have selected Utah CB Sean Smith - one of my favorite players in this draft.  Smith measures in at 6'3 1/2", 214 pounds and ran the 40 at his pro day in 4.47 seconds.  He also has 34 5/8" arms.

Here's what Draft Countdown says about Smith:

Strengths: Excellent height and bulk with long arms...Smooth with outstanding athleticism...Decent speed...Very good hands...Terrific ball skills and body control...Very agile...Physical and aggressive...Supports the run well...Reliable tackler...Gets a nice jam at the line...Elusive in the open field..Reads and reacts quickly...Extremely confident...Lots of upside.

Weaknesses: May be a bit of a 'tweener...Needs to get stronger...Hips aren't fluid and doesn't transition well...Will struggle to turn and run with speedy wideouts...Doesn't change directions real well...Can be too aggressive at times and will get fooled...Has a tendency to get beat deep...Lacks a burst to close...Raw and is not a great technician...Limited experience.

Here's more about Sean Smith from our "Scouting The Draft" series.

Needless to say, I'm thrilled with Miami's day one draft.  Getting both Vontae Davis and Sean Smith is awesome!  Throw in the explosive and versatile Pat White, and day one was a success.
