Colorado cornerback Jimmy Smith is not afraid to put himself in elite company.
“I like the comparison, he’s a shutdown corner in the NFL. I mean, I like the comparison a lot. I think I have better ball skills than he does, though.”
Smith’s claim isn’t as offensive as Cam Newton’s “entertainer and icon” remark, but the kid should be careful. There is no way he is better than Asomugha at anything at this point, so he should just stay quiet. Confidence is one thing, absurdity is another.
