NFL | Smith likes USC linebackers

D. Orlando Ledbetter, of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith said he is impressed with University of Southern California LBs Brian Cushing, Rey Maualuga, Clay Matthews and Kaluka Maiava. "I think there is one common theme that these guys have and that's they enjoy playing the game of football," Smith said. "That's very obvious when you watch those guys on tape. They play with a lot of intensity. They play with a lot of passion. They have different sizes. They run differently, but the one thing that they do is that they play, very, very hard."
