Strengths: Smith isn't an elite talent, but he's athletic and willing to support the run. He has decent coverage instincts and is capable of filling an interchangeable role for the Vikings immediately.
Weaknesses: Smith isn't a true in-the-box, physical safety prospect, nor is he a quick twitch, rangy coverage safety. It remains to be seen whether he can make enough plays to take advantage of his likely every-down opportunity.
2012 Outlook: DB3 w/ upside
