Summary

Dallas took a chance on Jaylon Smith in spite of a major collegiate injury, and it paid off as he's firmly in the conversation as one of the best interior linebackers in the NFC. He makes smart decisions, is aggressive to the ball, and has earned the right to take chances from Rod Marinelli. Smith notched 83 solo tackles, 38 assists, 4 sacks, three forced fumbles and four pass breakups last year, and could be even better this season. He's a top-tier IDP linebacker, best suited as an LB2.
