"He looks a lot like Ray Lewis," Brady said. "Ray Lewis is Hall of Fame, he's one of the best players I've ever played against but Daryl Smith has really stepped in and been a big leader for them. He's right in the middle of the defense. Really smart, instinctive player, really good against the pass, fast sideline to sideline. He's got a lot of qualities, a great linebacker. He's made a lot of plays from an interception return for a touchdown, strip-sacks, fumbles and stuff like that. He's really good.
