The Lions are feeling really good about the acquisition of CB Alphonso Smith, who was acquired when TE Dan Gronkowski was traded to Denver. Smith moves into the starting lineup after collecting interceptions in each of the last two games at Minnesota and Green Bay. “He’s been a ball hawk,” Schwartz said. “He’s a guy who can play the ball in the air. He’s also a young player, a guy we thought a lot of (in the 2009 draft).” The Broncos drafted Smith on the second round out of Wake Forest, 37th overall, in 2009. They traded a first-round pick in 2010 to Seattle for that pick. But Smith busted out in Denver, playing in 15 games without a start and also without an interception. Smith set the ACC record with 21 career interceptions.
