Seahawks LB Malcolm Smith does not have a defined role heading into this season.

Don't get fooled by Smith's fluky Super Bowl MVP award. He was a fill-in for most of last season, subbing for Bruce Irvin during a PED suspension and then for Bobby Wagner/K.J. Wright during injuries. Smith's best path to playing time is in packages that feature Irvin as a defensive end, thus getting four linebackers on the field.

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.

Seahawks LB Malcolm Smith left Thursday night's game against the 49ers with a concussion and will not return.

Smith was injured on the opening kickoff but jogged off under his own power. He's a second-year linebacker out of USC who is primarily a special teams player.

Seahawks selected USC LB Malcolm Smith with the No. 242 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Smith is an old pal of Pete Carroll's, who brought him in for an official pre-draft visit a few weeks back. Though just a two-year starter at weak-side linebacker at USC, Smith is a workout dynamo. He benched 225 pounds 28 times at the Trojans' March 30 Pro Day, and ran 4.47 at 6-foot-1, 225. Smith projects as a special teamer and possible nickel 'backer in Seattle.
