"My biggest thing was just not being 100 percent confident in my assignments," Smith said. "Being that I understood the pro-style offense in college, it was more like, 'What play do I have this protection or when do I have to worry about this?' Really, I had four weeks to try and get all that. It was just thrown at you. But I'm happy that everything happened how it did. The negative, getting ripped by the media and by the fans, it happens to everyone at some point. I was able to deal with both extremes, the highs and the lows. When I finally did show that I can play here and I belong here, it was a nice feeling."
