Bucs Ryan Smith, former NCCU star, hits Smooth Criminal to save punt

It won’t show up in a boxscore, but Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Ryan Smith just made one of the biggest plays of his young career. The rookie from North Carolina Central made a diving leap to keep a punt from going into the endzone.

When taken in freeze-frame, Smith’s save looks a lot like the infamous Smooth Criminal pose by Michael Jackson.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Smith, a fourth round pick in last spring’s draft, hasn’t played much on defense this year. But it’s likely his time will come sooner rather than later. And as long as he keeps making plays like this, he’ll have a roster spot somewhere.
