Reggie Smith The Enigma

For a guy who is thought of being a potential first-round pick, Reggie Smith has been pretty much a ghost. A broken toe has sidelined this talented and versatile junior, forcing him to skip workouts at the Combine and the Oklahoma Pro Day. It looks like he won't be ready to run until April, where he and former teammate Malcolm Kelly hope to impress scouts at a private workout on the 9th.

Reggie Smith reminds me in ways of Quentin Jammer. Both have the athletic ability to play corner or safety and both have a somewhat compact and muscular build which makes them superb against the run.

Smith's stock has been slipping and he will have a ton riding on his workouts. I'm not sure he can elevate himself higher than a low-first grade, but with a lack of elite safeties in this draft you might see a team jump on him earlier than expected. Reggie Smith would be a fine pick-up for the Chargers at pick 27 and would bring some serious competition to both the nickel corner back as well as strong safety spot...similar to Eric Weddle in his rookie season. He also has some great return skills and would be a nice playmaker on special teams.
