49ers | C. Smith getting a chance to start

Dennis Georgatos, writing for the Sporting News, reports San Francisco 49ers LB Corey Smith is getting his first chance at a starting job. He is projected as the replacement at outside linebacker for LB Andre Carter, now with the Washington Redskins. Smith made the transition from defensive end to linebacker during training camp a year ago and now is ready to be a major contributor. He has the strength and speed to line up over a tight end and challenge him off the line of scrimmage.
