Rookie UDFA - Safety Maurice Smith

Post by white1 on Thu Aug 31, 2017 10:31 am

According to Mando (and he has been very good) S Maurice Smith will make the team and stick on the 53 man roster.

Another UDFA prospect.

If we can continue to find and develop UDFAs, it will do wonders for the talent and depth on this roster. We all know we are not where we need to be. Cheap, young talent with upside is a key to long term success. Most of the good teams have this. An encouraging sign.

Seems like Smith has gotten a lot of playing time this preseason. From what I've seen he looks OK. If he does make the team, I think it has more to do with the fact that our safeties suck across the board after Jones - rather than Smith being a future star. I was holding out hope that AJ Hendy would step up, but he's been invisible and I doubt he makes the team. We'll see...

I think Smith has looked very good to be honest. I think he's one of our better safety prospects in quite some time. I'd like to see him play some free safety. Right now, I bet they're balking because of his size, but something about the kid makes me take notice.

Mike Mayock attended some of the Dolphins practices and said he was floored by Smith's play. Love it. The big nickel dream is alive and well.

I don't think we've had a legit young safety prospect since Reshad Jones first came into the league. It would be great if Smith could follow in his footsteps.
