2012 Experience: 2nd Season
IDP Fantasy Football Outlook: After suffering an ankle injury early in camp, there was no way Jimmy Smith was going to earn much playing time. Towards the end of the year, Smith received more playing time and showed flashes of being a decent corner back option in IDP leagues.
Look for Smith to win a starting job over Corey Williams this summer, and he has the potential to be a fine cover corner in the NFL. I figure he’s got one, maybe two years as an option for IDP leagues. Look for opposing teams to test him this year with Lardarius Webb on the other side. This could make Smith a solid CB2 option if he continues to make big plays.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
Looking for a breakout rookie corner like Devin McCourty in this years’ class? Look no further than Jimmy Smith as he projects to be a starter for the Ravens and will surly be tested by opposing quarterbacks like Ben Roethlisberger. Smith will have his rough days as a rookie but, like Patrick Peterson of the Cardinals, his best IDP years of his career will probably be at the start.
That’s mainly because Smith is probably going to be a Pro Bowl caliber corner (if he can keep it together off the field) and teams won’t want to throw the football his way, long term. Smith is an interesting late round pick in IDP leagues where you start two corner positions, but I wouldn’t look to him as a start worthy option for week one.
