One of our players is getting some love right now in the media. Prisco from CBS came up with his Top 25 candidates to breakout this year and Jimmy is one of them:

 

Jimmy Smith, CB, Baltimore Ravens -- In his third season with the Ravens, Smith started all 16 games in 2013 and showed an ability to match up in man coverage. He is big and physical at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds and was one of the more underrated corners in the league last season. Watch him this season.

We all saw him break out after the 1st half of the season last year but this year he's on everybody's radar from day 1 and should be a pro bowler / all pro if everything goes well. :)

Coming up on his first "big payday" also adds that extra motivation also

Jimmy's mental game is getting to where it needs to be to be a #1 CB ... His physicality has been there since day 1. I'm definitely excited to see him go toe to toe with AJ Green week 1.

Given how we seem to keep a lid on opposing WR1s, I'd say AJ doesn't share your excitement for that matchup.

I'm pretty sure you meant Prisco, so I don't know why this is getting negged. Unless I'm reading the wrong thing into it.

By the end of last year, he was already one of the top #1's in the game. He's top 5-10 if he can do it for a whole season this time.

His hips are fine, it's anticipation and balance he needs.  And for 8 games there he was well above average... 

 

He gave up 5 yards to Calvin Johnson in Man coverage... if you think that's average man, then I just don't getcha.

His best game, in my opinion, was against Brandon Marshall. You could tell Marshall was frustrated when playing against him.

He didn't drop most of the balls.  He had one drop on a bad ball where he came open on a fade for a TD, but even then Jimmy had pretty good positioning.

 

You don't play Brandon Marshall like that on accident.  On the goal line. And I agree, AJ's a tough maatchup for him because he's so shifty.

Yep, I guess the "Jimmy is a bust" crowd took offense

Probably the same thing that happened when they squared off in college -- Jimmy shut him down.

Beat me to it. Georgia purposely schemed AJ Green to be as far away from Jimmy as possible

I thought Jimmy broke out in the 2012 playoffs/SB and carrying into last year to be honest, nobody in the media took notice though because his last name wasn't Revis, Sherman, or Peterson. Remember that job he did on Calvin Johnson? I do expect him to be even better this season though and solidify himself as a top 10 man cover guy in the NFL by the end of the year.

Him and Webb. Webb was talking about his knee being more bouncy and that he was more comfortable then he's been in the last two years. Good news in the secondary with Elam garnering unsolicited praise for his progress as well and him moving back to the SS position. If Darian Stewart can come in and play decent at FS or Jeremy Miles, we're going to have a pretty decent secondary. The #3CB position is also in the air until we see a couple preseason games but I don't doubt that Ozzie likes Chykie Brown for a reason.
