Sean Smith (born July 14, 1987) is an American football cornerback for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He played college football at Utah.
He led his team to its best record in 10 years as a senior. He rushed for over 1,500 yards, with 18 rushing touchdowns and also had 547 receiving yards and over 400 yards in kickoff returns that year.
Sean Smith was redshirted for the 2005 season. During 2006, his redshirt freshman year, he played as a wide receiver for the first eleven games before moving to cornerback, he played in all 13 games ending with seven rushes for 63 yards (9.0 average) and one reception for 12 yards.
In 2007, he started in ten games for the Utes, nine at cornerback. He had four interceptions, which was the best for a single player in the Mountain West that year and tied the Utah single-game record with four pass breakups against the New Mexico Lobos toward the end of the 2007 season.
In 2008 Smith started in all but one game for the Utes, finishing First-Team All-Mountain West defensive back. His five interceptions on the season were the most on the team and tied for first in the conference. Smith's best performance, though, may have come in the 2009 Sugar Bowl, where he had six tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and a huge pass breakup in Utah's stunning 31-17 victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide.
