After a 2-14 season hope springs eternal with a new coach in Andy Reid, a new quarterback in Alex Smith and a new secondary, expectations are high in Kansas City. More specifically  in the defensive backfield, where free agent cornerbacks Sean Smith and Dunta Robinson were added to join safety Eric Berry and the Brandon Flowers. According to Marc Sessler of NFL.com, Flowers feels the group has the potential to be the best secondary in the league. “We going out there trying to have the best secondary,” Flowers said. “Sean Smith is a big corner that can bump and run … we brought in Dunta Robinson, someone who can come in and cover. Also, [safety] Eric Berry is always roaming on the back end. If we put it all together, man, I think we have the pieces to be the best secondary in the NFL.” Sessler writes: ‘The new-look lineup should help. Smith, at 25, has shown flashes as a cover corner. Quarterbacks picked on him last season -- the former Miami Dolphin was targeted 113 times in 2012, more than any corner in the NFL, according to ProFootballFocus.'
