    Perhaps it was a scrimmage against the Chicago offensive alignment?

And I have a lot of confidence in him on being able to do that. Smith is better at positioning himself than the 2 best corners were coming out of this draft, Malcolm Jenkins and Vontae Davis.

    Smith will be FINE. Actually, he'll be AWESOME.
    I wouldn't say it doesn't matter- it can be compensated for, to a certain degree, by a really talented player, but it most certainly matters.

    It's like saying speed doesn't matter for a RB- sure, there are plenty of great RBs without ridiculous speed, but it definitely helps.

    Lol, Foxworth isn't worth the money he got. He isn't that talented, and never has been. He's depth.

    And as much as I love Darrent and respect your opinion man, he would be nowhere near a top 10 corner.

    He turned into our future All-Pro, Pro Bowl CB after his murder.

    Kid had talent, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a better human being... but he was never going to be an elite corner in this league.

    Thank you Skywalker for the Marshall sig!

    Thank you Damien and Darrent for the memories. You will never be forgotten!

    He'll be fine.

    Well, you're guessing about Dwil, and Foxworth is on what...his 3rd team?

    "It's not the speed," Smith said. "It's that everyone is professional. Everyone is a master of their craft. That's where rookies are lacking. You need to be more precise, more disciplined, more on-key."
    I really like this guy.

    I think its entirely possible that Smith winds up giving Goodman a run for his money at the 2nd CB spot. Either way we will wind up with 3 of the better corners in the league. Champ is undeniably one of the best and Goodman is above average imo. Smith, while still new and a relative unknown in the NFL, will have excellent examples to learn from and may outshine at least one of his mentors before all is said and done.

    Jack Williams is 5'9", What about Dumervil, one of the shortest DEs ever and he is an animal. Size's X factor is ability, size don't mean nothin if the player has ability!:salute!:

    Alphonso Smith - They say size matters...

    We may have given up too much for Alphonso Smith, BUT...We got him, and I'm excited!

    Alphonso Smith - 5'9" 190lbs
    Dre Bly - 5'10" 188lbs

    http://wakeforestsports.cstv.com/spo...lphonso00.html
    Personal:
    A history major ... Nicknames are Zo and Prime Could prime come from "prime time - Deion Sanders" Watching one of the highlight films one of the commentators did refer to him as being a similar player to Deion.

    So we have Prime on Defense and Baby TO on offense! YES!

    -Set the school record for interception return yards in a season only to see LB Aaron Curry break that mark later in the year ...
    -Named ACC Defensive Back of the Week following the Maryland game (Sept. 22) ...
    -Is a graduate of the National Football Foundation's Play It Smart program ... Led the ACC in fumbles forced with four ...
    -Led the conference in passes defended with 18 ...
    -Season-high seven tackles vs. Florida State and NC State ...
    -Made three sacks on the year and now has nine career sacks ...
    -Had 4.5 tackles for loss in 2007 and has 21 for his career.

    2006 - 3 INT's
    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/sortab...=ints&group=80

    #1 2007 NCAA INT leaders - 8INT's 3 for TD's...
    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/sortab...=2007&group=80

    #1 2008 NCAA INT leaders - 7INT's (along with Darcel McBath who had 7INT's /2 for TD's!!)

    He also has longer arms than most people his size and big hands which should make him more like 5' 10" rather than 5' 9".

    arms
    311/2"
    hands
    93/4"

    Vontae Davis who is 5' 11"
    arms
    30"
    hands
    91/4"

    Thats it i'm sold! He has bigger reach than a guy of 5' 11" and he way out produced any of the other corners coming out this year AND he seems like (as we say in england) a diamond geezer! -: Translation :- a person of high character.

    IMO we got three first rounders this year and one next year, rather than having to wait a year for a 1st rounder, we got him now so he can learn from Champ and by next year could be our #2 CB.... genius!

    I'm getting more and more excited about this season... shame that its still 12 weeks away from any actual football games!

    Yeah, but have you looked at his vertical? 38" isn't all that great when going against a 6'2" receiver. Champs vert is 44"...
