Harrison Smith is now Mel Kiper's No. 2 safety.
The former Notre Dame captain trails only Alabama's Mark Barron on Kiper's lists of top five draft prospects by position.
Analysis: Among this group, Barron is the only one I have right now with a relatively safe first-round grade, but Smith is right in the picture. Antonio Allen is a guy I was a little late on, but going through the tape on him I've come away extremely impressed. He's a riser for me in recent weeks.
Smith moved up one spot from last week. Former Irish receiver Michael Floyd held steady at No. 3 this week. Kiper has both going in the first round in this week's mock draft.
