"I think another year would make me a lot more known around the football community, I guess, with like a lot more hype going into the season," Smith said. "Things that would make me leave is if they said I would go first or second round, then of course I would leave. That`s a no-brainer." Smith was named second team All-Big 12 by the Associated Press this season after playing in all 12 games for the Buffs and finishing as the fifth leading tackler on the team with 70 total stops. He intercepted two passes with a forced fumble and fumble recovery and finished the season with10 pass breakups. Those are likely not the numbers of a first- or second-round selection, but Smith is already considered a strong candidate to be drafted because of his size (6-foot-2, 205 pounds) and his athleticism. NFLDraftScout ranks Smith as the 42nd best cornerback in the 2011 class with nine other Big 12 defensive backs rated ahead of him.
