RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Smith inked a four-year deal with the Raiders in the offseason after spending the past three seasons with the Chiefs. He'll join David Amerson to form the starting cornerback duo this year, although he has never been too much of an IDP option.
Smith started all 16 games for the Chiefs in 2014, but managed just one interception and 50 tackles (47 solo). He faces a three-game suspension to start the 2015 campaign, but should retake a starting spot when he returns.
At 6-3, 218 pounds, Smith's size and ability are an ideal fit for defensive coordinator Bob Sutton’s press-man scheme. Assuming he retains his starting gig out of camp, Smith -- who recorded 47 tackles an two picks last season should retain utility in deeper IDP leagues.
Smith is expected to start at cornerback opposite Brandon Flowers. With Flowers' shutdown abilities deterring quarterbacks from throwing his way, Smith could benefit with opportunities to make plays and tackles.
Along with Vontae Davis, Smith provide the Dolphins with one of the better CB duos in the NFL, but his lack of interceptions and big plays don't make him much of a threat in IDP leagues.
Smith is the starting right cornerback for the Dolphins. Smith and Vontae Davis form one of the better tandems in the league and with an improved pass rush perhaps Smith could be in line for more than the one interception he had last season.
Smith should be starting at cornerback along with Vontae Davis, but if Will Allen proves to be recuperated from his ACL tear than he may be in the mix as well for a starting job.
In June OTAs, Smith lined up as a first string cornerback. While this is no guarantee that he will begin the season as the starter, he certainly seems to have a leg up on the competition entering training camp.
