Save for running back Adrian Peterson, the Vikings aren't known for celebrity. Their return from the dead has been built on rookie linebackers, heavy rotations on the defensive line, and a collection of no-names playing together to create a sum greater than its parts. Safety Harrison Smith is a pillar of this philosophy. He can play the pass, yet still tackle with the best of defensive backs. He's smart and reads offenses well. In other words, he's a consummate pro. Though he has but one Pro Bowl to his name, he's an exquisite piece for building a defense-first team that's short on glamour and self-promotion, but long on constructing the kind of do-your-job cohesiveness that makes for winning football in the NFL.
