Malcolm Smith LB SEA 1 Month
Seahawks LB Malcolm Smith was named the MVP of Super Bowl 48.
The Super Bowl MVP decider(s) must be avid box-score scouts, because Smith filled up the stat sheet but was significantly less deserving that SS Kam Chancellor, RE Cliff Avril, WR/KR Percy Harvin, and QB Russell Wilson, just to name a few. Smith gets the nod due to a 69-yard pick six that was caused by pressure on Peyton Manning, and a fumble recovery where he just happened to be near the play. Smith finished with nine tackles. We would've gone with Harvin or Chancellor.

Malcolm Smith is penciled in as the Seahawks' starting weak-side linebacker.
Smith was a nickel 'backer in 2012, recording 22 tackles and two pass breakups across 16 appearances (three starts). He'll be replacing Leroy Hill, who managed only 47 tackles last season. It's not a great situation for IDP value.
