Cam Smith is a good press corner who plays with aggression and physicality. He is a high-effort player who plays with the right psychological mindset and confidence. Smith can stick with receivers and shows good movement skills. But, there are question marks over his long speed and overall athletic ability which matters so much at the corner position. He will need to be in the right man coverage scheme and he may not be your #1 corner on a team but if you drop him into the right man-coverage scheme, which has other playmakers in the secondary, he will have a decent NFL career.
