The Dallas Cowboys need cornerback help, and by grabbing DeAngelo Smith, they are taking a wise gamble on a guy who could become an impact player if he plays up to his potential. He is a very physical cornerback who enjoys pushing and shoving the receiver to get him off route, but he needs a lot of work on his footwork and technique. He was expected to go much higher in the draft when the 2008 season ended, but he struggled in the spring and fell down draft boards. Definitely a good risk-based pick—if he can go from being a better athlete than player, he could become a quality starting cornerback.
