We all know that San Francisco 49ers OLB Aldon Smith is a premier athlete. A physical freak with the speed to chase down mobile quarterbacks, Smith has quickly become an elite pass-rusher in the NFL. However, that’s not to say he can’t stop shifty running backs out of the flat as Smith tracks down RB Darren Sproles and then flips over him for a hard fought tackle. Watch the play here.
