The Cowboys took a serious risk by selecting Smith in the second round of the 2016 draft after he completely blew up his knee in that year's Fiesta Bowl and many thought he may never play football again. Three years later, and Smith has emerged on one of the best young linebackers in the game and looks close to 100%. The Cowboys offense tends to control the ball and he will have to split opportunities with Vander Esch who is a beast in his own right, but Smith should still be able to come close to 120 total tackles again and is always a pass-rushing threat from the inside.Kirksey was on his way to another strong top 15-20 linebacker season before his campaign was cut short in week 9 due to a hamstring injury. Competition from Joe Schobert and less tackle opportunity in general may keep Kirksey out of the top 12 this year, but he should be a solid LB2 nevertheless.
