Arthur Smith

Position: Cornerback


College: Northeastern

Who he is: Signed by the Ravens in May as an undrafted rookie free agent, Smith was a first-team All-Atlantic 10 pick after leading Northeastern to the conference championship his senior year. A co-captain as a senior, Smith notched 56 tackles and two interceptions, as well as a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and a 54-yard pass reception. Smith had a league-high seven interceptions as a junior.


On learning from the Ravens secondary: "It's an honor being out there with those guys. Some of them have been in the league for a while, and they know what they're doing. So it's just an honor to be here."

How he spends his free time: "I'm just sticking to the hotel, trying to up my game. I work out, lift and run and all that. But basically, I'm pretty simple."

The biggest change from college to pro: "The speed of the game, man. It's just incredible."

On playing Buffalo: "It was a little shaky at first, but after you run around and get the blood pumping and break it all down, it's still the game of football."
