Harrison Smith the Man or what?

Came across something at profootballfocus. Basically saying Harrison Smith is the second best safety in the NFL at the moment. This is based strictly on stats from the first 4 games and nothing on history or projecting the future. Being good through 4 games doesn't make you better than Ed Reed, but it is a start.

Not sure what the hell it means or how exactly they come up with it, but it has to be a good sign. Harrison hasn't made an interception yet but he's come up big on a lot of plays and seems to be all over the field at times. He does this all despite lining up out of position quite frequently to disguise coverages and confuse defenses.

I've been a fan of him so far. I'll admit that I wasn't thrilled about using a 1st round pick on the 2nd best safety at the time but so far they are getting a solid return. I mean I'd still rather have a boss pass rusher or skill player out of that round but safety was a weak point last year and Harrison is doing his part to change it.

Hell there aren't that many new pieces for which to assign credit for the huge turnaround. Harrison and Robinson are the main two.
