NFL Draft 2009 Round 2 #61- Miami Dolphins- CB Sean Smith

The Dolphins again go for more help to improve a pass defense that ranked 25th in the NFL last season.

ESPN writes-

The pick: Sean Smith, CB, Utah
What he brings: Smith possesses an extremely rare blend of size and speed. Although there are some concerns about his ability to stay low and quickly change direction, Smith is able to mask these flaws with his outstanding length.

How he fits: Miami tried to bolster its corners by taking another in the second round. Smith fits the Bill Parcells mold for corners because he’s got good length, size and adequate top-end speed. He fits Miami’s scheme and general manager Jeff Ireland has certainly been proactive in addressing this weakness.

This could be a sleeper pick for Miami that won’t compensate for the Pat White pick which I think has all the makings of a bust.
