Having drafted Nick Perry a few picks previous, the Patriots now make perhaps a small reach to fill a team need at safety and grab Smith.

He isn't the fastest guy on the field, but he has great anticipation and energy, which more than makes up for it.
The New York Giants are now on the clock with the final pick in the first round.
