Smith adjusts to next level
D’Anthony Smith had been in a National Football League mini-camp for less than a week and discovered quickly the changes he was about to confront as a professional player.
“Everybody up here is bigger and faster,” marveled Smith, a third-round draftee of the Jacksonville Jaguars. “You see all of this talent and you find out real quick that everybody is just as good as the next person. You get a quick wake-up call, that’s for sure.”
But Smith, with good quickness and size (6-2, 305) of his own, figures to make his presence quickly in the Jaguars’ defensive interior.
