The Baltimore Sun also reported that Smith met with Ryan, Payton and Mickey Loomis at the Combine.

"It was a good meeting," Smith told the paper. "They had me going over plays. They drew stuff up on the board and showed me film and asked me how I would respond in their defense."

Concerned somewhat. If we keep bringing in CB's coach does not have much faith in the DL. We have to have pressure, without that no CB is good enough.

The first thing Payton did when he came here was start rolling in the corners. He has done it consistently and I don't expect him to change. He knows where the weaknesses on defense are and he's trying to solidify his defense.
