Malcolm Smith was somewhat of a surprise name for many when he was named the MVP of Super Bowl XLVIII when the Seattle Seahawks decidedly defeated the Denver Broncos. Here is a look at five fun facts about Malcolm Smith.

For A 10 Yard Loss Too!

The first NFL player Malcolm Smith tackled in the NFL was Ted Ginn Jr. of the 49ers. It came on a punt return in the second quarter of a Seattle loss.

Jersey Numbers

Malcolm Smith wears jersey number 53 for the Seahawks in the NFL. He wore jersey number six while playing college football at USC.

30? Seriously, 30?

Malcolm Smith was the 31st linebacker taken in the 2011 NFL Draft, when he was picked in the seventh round. He was even the second linebacker drafted that year by Seattle who had also taken K.J. Wright in the fourth round.

Timing Is Everything

Malcolm Smith had zero interceptions in the first 43 games of his NFL career. He then had four in a string of five games, including the final two games of the 2013 regular season, followed by one in the NFC Championship Game victory over the 49ers, and then of course one in Seattle’s Super Bowl win over the Broncos.

The Third Ever!

Malcolm Smith was named the MVP of Super Bowl XLVIII when the Seahawks defeated the Broncos. He was just the third linebacker ever to win the award. The first two were Chuck Howley of the Cowboys in Super Bowl V and Ray Lewis of the Ravens in Super Bowl XXXV.
