Frazier brought up an interesting point in his postgame presser, talking about drafting Harrison. He basically said that it was the Kalil trade-down that gave them the added picks needed to trade up for Harrison.

Let us hope they do it again since they have Detroit's 4th rounder.

What a pick this has turned out to be so far. Smith already looks like he's going to be a mainstay in the Vikings' secondary for years to come; his production actually matches the hype.

Kind of off topic, but in that INT clip look at Josh Robinson at the 20 yard line just running past everyone. When everyone is running full speed. Shocked

He runs better routes than some of our receivers! Play him on both sides fo the ball perhaps? If ony for a few plays a game, and not during this, his rookie season?

Umm no, my point was he just shows up out of nowhere and is just running so much faster than everyone else (including Harrison). Showcasing his elite speed again.


But nevermind..... Nice play by Smith

I love how the announcer asked if that was Chad Greenway. Laughing

He's making a serious case for DROY.

Leslie Frazier: "He's having a fantastic rookie year. That [interception] play he made was a great play and then the run after the catch. He's a smart football player, a tough football player; he's been great for our defense. He should have a bright future. I think he's going to be a good football player for a long time. The fact that he's a smart player, he studies, he works extremely hard, and he has very good hands. He's a bright player who is very athletic and talented. Along with a lot of our other guys, he's helped our defense improve."

Smith: "I got in the end zone and I was just excited. I wasn't thinking anything, I was just excited. Then I realized we had to get back on the defense, so I calmed down."

Smith never had returned an interception for a touchdown at Notre Dame, and this was his first interception and first touchdown in the NFL.

Tim Irwin, a former outstanding Vikings tackle from 1981 to '93 coached Harrison Smith as a youngster, has watched him perform as a pro and describes him as an even better athlete than former teammate Joey Browner, a six-time Pro Bowl player.

Irwin: "Joey Browner was a big hitter, yes sir. I think Smith is better in coverage than Joey was. Well, he's younger! He's doing it now. Joey did it 20 years ago, but he's a little faster than Joey. Joey was a big, physical, more of a strong safety type. Harrison can cover the field better in space."

"He has a tremendous amount of talent. I'll tell you something about that kid, he has a work ethic that is unbelievable. He flat out made himself into what he is. He has a lot of talent and comes from a real good home, but he worked his butt off for a lot of years and he's come a long way.

"A real good athlete, maybe the best I ever saw at the age I had him. Definitely the best I ever coached, and I coached a whole lot of kids. He was unstoppable. He was a great high school player. The only mistake he made in his life was going to Notre Dame instead of the University of Tennessee [where Irwin played]."

"I like his athleticism, his toughness, his intensity and his intelligence. I think he's just exactly what the Vikings needed at that position. I'm very proud of him."

What are his chances for DROY and what other defensive rookies are having a breakout year?

Janoris Jenkins - 4 defensive TDs
Bobby Wagner
Luke Kuechly

Jenkins is my DROY right now.

It's hard to say who's going to be the DROTY, as there are lots of good candidates. I don't think Harrison will win, but I'd be surprised if he doesn't finish in the top 3-5 of the voting.

I don't see Jenkins winning though, because despite the big plays, he's been pretty mediocre in coverage. It's either going to be Casey Hayward or Wagner.
