2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Jimmy Smith

Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado (6'2" 205 lbs.)

Positives: At 6'2", he has a great mix of size and speed. Has the ability to jam receivers at the line and runs well with speedy receivers. He has very good body control, and makes plays on the ball much like a receiver. Has the potential to start as a rookie and develop into lockdown NFL cornerback.

Negatives: Because he's so tall, he needs to work on staying lower and getting out of his breaks quicker. He will need to learn to play within a zone defense system. Has a tendancy to freelance a bit and misses assignment when he's in press coverage. He turned some teams off with his cocky attitude at the NFL Scouting Combine.
