With a fresh start, Alphonso Smith pulls a Fresh Prince

During the 2009 draft, McDaniels traded away a 2010 first round draft pick to move up and grab Wake Forest standout Alphonso Smith.

After a year struggling as a nickel corner, and with Perrish Cox playing well in training camp and preseason, the Broncos traded Smith to Detroit for TE Dan Gronkowski in early September.

The cornerback has played well in Detroit so far. Touted as a ball hawk out of college, he has three interceptions so far this year—one off Brett Favre, another from Aaron Rodgers, and against St. Louis’s soon-to-be sidelined with an injury liability Sam Bradford.

When Smith snagged an errant Bradford pass and returned it for a touchdown Sunday, he busted out the Carlton dance from Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

  1. Gronkowski; had he caught that little dump pass from Orton the Broncos may have had a better showing against the Ravens. The Donks had some momentum going into the 3rd quarter, but that set them back and they never recovered. Lesson learned: never depend on a 3rd string tight end to catch a simple dump pass when he is being defended by a second string linebacker.
