Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina

Height/Weight: 6-1, 180

Key stats: In 33 games, including 19 starts, recorded six interceptions and 18 additional pass breakups.

College honors: Named second-team All-SEC by AP in 2021, when he also earned honorable mention All-America recognition from Pro Football Focus.

Background/other info: Despite missing 2021 fall camp due to foot surgery, had his breakout season as a redshirt sophomore, allowing just 15 catches on 32 targets in 11 games, according to the school's statistics. Led the team with 14 total passes defensed that year (three INTs, 11 breakups). Followed that up with one INT and five breakups, along with a blocked field goal, in 2022. Was regularly matched against an opponent's top receiver and competed well, though he's been knocked for drawing too many flags last season, so channeling his physical style more effectively will be key at the next level. Clocked a 4.43 in the 40 at the combine with a 38-inch vertical jump.
