Smith recorded five interceptions as a junior after getting four the year before.
He first arrived at Utah as a running back before switching to wide receiver and then to cornerback.
Smith said his experience as a wideout gave him an advantage in coverage because he understands route running. Also helping is his 6-3 frame and long reach.
Being relatively new at the position, Smith is still considered somewhat raw in his technique, particularly when it comes to his backpedal.
That inexperience is why he was available to the Dolphins at the No. 61 slot. But his athletic ability, which is exceptional for a player his size, could help him become a steal for the Dolphins if he can hone his skills over time.
