Pro: Jimmy Smith is 6'2'' 211 which we know the Eagles love. They had a lot of success with Bobby Taylor and Troy Vincent who were taller corners and the Eagles could desperately use a cornerback with size. Smith is also fast, as he ran a 4.42 in the 40-yard dash. His combination of size and speed would make him a great pick at No. 23. Smith has a long wingspan and lots of confidence, as he has proclaimed himself a shutdown corner.
Con: Smith has character issues, with four failed drug tests in college. He has also had some minor brushes with the law, and he has already changed agents before the combine. Andy Reid typically shies away from players who lack character. However, Smith would be a great gamble at 23, as his talent is probably borderline top 10, but the character issues will make him fall.
Chances at #23: Average (unfortunately). If the Eagles go CB, Smith has to be the guy if he is still there (I think he will be). However, knowing Reid and the kind of players he likes, I'm not sure he will take a chance on the character issues here.
If not Smith, Eagles could opt for CB Bradon Harris of Miami, but 23 is kind of high for him. If they want Harris, my guess is they trade down. Harris is only 5'9'' though, and Smith would be a much better value.
