New Dolphin - Sean Smith, CB

Way back on February 4th, I wrote a profile on potential draft prospect, Sean Smith. Back then the only thing most people knew about him (if they knew him at all) was the 'legendary' interception that was on every year-end highlight show for the 2008 season.

Well, after moving players on, off, around above and underneath my draft board, Smith was one of the few names that stayed in place from day 1. At one point, the media frenzied over him and I suddenly thought we would lose our shot at picking him since his stock was skyrocketing. Then it just leveled off and settled back and we were able to get him with the #61 pick. Since February, I've watched some more tape on him, and let me tell you, despite his size (6'3", 210lbs) he can turn on a dime, swivel his hips, get his hands up and catch the ball. And if he's underneath the receiver, forget about it.

Smith IS the lockdown corner we've been looking for. It's just too dangerous to risk throwing it his way. And he does a fine Blair Witch impression below. (warning, do not watch this video if you suffer from motion sickness or epilepsy)

So what do we know about Sean Smith? We know he can play football. We know he has a sense of humour. We know either he or his friend (whoever edited and posted the video) can't spell. The one thing we don't know is how far up the depth chart he can climb. But we do know he's a Miami Dolphin.

Welcome home, Sean!

    Yup.  We got him at #61. 
    BTW, thanks for all the effort to make me look good and get something I wanted (for once)!
