RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jimmy Smith.
Smith turned in arguably his best season as a pro in 2015, as he recorded his first career sack, a career high three interceptions, 54 tackles, and 10 passes defensed while playing on 94.2 percent of Baltimoreís defensive snaps. Heíll be the teamís No. 1 corner once again in 2016 and could turn in a comparable year to last season if he stays healthy.
Smith signed a four-year extension in April while still recovering from a season-ending Lisfranc injury. Although may still be limited at the start of training camp, the Ravens expect Smith to be starting at right cornerback come Week 1. He's been effective when healthy, but his strong work in coverage hasn't translated into impressive stats.
Smith, a 2011 first-round pick, finally lived up to expectations in 2013, emerging as a solid starter. He has excellent size (6-2, 200), good speed and fairly reliable hands, but still only recorded 58 tackles and two interceptions in 16 games. While a small jump in production seems likely, he isn't a great run defender and doesn't have the best ball skills, so he's probably more valuable to the Ravens than your fantasy team.
Smith's first two years have mostly been a major disappointment, but he came up with two huge plays in the final minutes of the Super Bowl and will try to build off that momentum. He'll compete against Corey Graham for a starting job in training camp, and Graham is probably the favorite, despite not having Smith's first-round pedgiree.
Smith has premier talent, and has been manning one of the starting corner spots in training camp as a rookie. As long as he keeps his head straight, he could hold onto the spot all season.
