The hot rookie

CB Reggie Smith. Clements and Walt Harris are the starters, but Smith, a third-round pick out of Oklahoma, is beginning to look like he could develop into one. What you notice about Smith is that he always seems to be around the ball and, even at this early stage, appears to have an awareness of everything around him and patience in his play.

During Sunday’s practice, he batted down a couple passes and intercepted one in the end zone during a red-zone drill.

Smith has some versatility to slide over and play safety, and can line up inside or on the edge. Also, keep an eye on sixth-round pick Josh Morgan, a receiver out of Virginia Tech.
