Harrison Smith   #22 DB

Height: 6-2   Weight: 214   Age: 29

Born: 2/2/1989 Augusta , GA

College: Notre Dame

Experience: 7th season

High School: Knoxville Catholic HS [TN]









Draft 2012

Pick No.29

Selected By: Minnesota Vikings

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 29 (29)

Pick Analysis: Smith is an ultra-athletic, big and smart safety who has roamed the secondary as a four-year starter and senior captain for Notre Dame. He is the type of safety who is always involved, using his quickness, recognition and overall body control to react effectively to plays. While he has just adequate speed, he makes up for this deficiency with strong play recognition and anticipation, and he is often in a position to make a play on the ball. Overall, Smith is a smart, athletic defender who should push to start early in a zone-heavy NFL scheme. Expect him to contend for a late first-round selection with the help of impressive postseason workouts and interviews.
