Thomas Lee Smith (born December 5, 1970 in Gatesville, North Carolina) is a former American football defensive back in the National Football League who played for the Buffalo Bills, the Chicago Bears, and the Indianapolis Colts. He played college football at the University of North Carolina. He was a starter for several Bills playoff teams, and was widely regarded as one of the better cornerbacks in the NFL. However, he had a notorious inability to catch the football; as a result, he missed so many potential interceptions that his superb play was overlooked, and he never received an invitation to the Pro Bowl.
