Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Broncos' picks: Round 2/37 -- Alphonso Smith, CB, 5-9, 193, Wake Forest...Smith fell down draft boards because of his height, but the Broncos had a first-round grade on him. They traded their 2010 first-round pick to Seattle to get Smith, the ACC's all-time leader in interceptions. Smith can come in right away and play in nickel packages, and perhaps push Andre' Goodman for a starting spot. Both of Denver's projected starting cornerbacks are more than 30 years old, and Smith is the future at the position. - by The Sports Xchange
