Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith was added to the 2016 Pro Bowl roster on Monday, replacing injured Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas. This is his first trip to the annual all-star game in Hawaii, so the team helped him celebrate by putting together a dramatic hype video.
Already an intimidating player, Smith seems even more intense in this two-minute trailer for his appearance in the Pro Bowl.
Via the Vikings' official Twitter account:
Although Smith suffered knee and hamstring injuries late in the year, the 2015 season was one of his finest since joining the Vikings as a first-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft (29th overall). The up-and-coming safety finished fourth on the team with 66 tackles (49 solo). He also recorded a forced fumble, 1.5 sacks and two interceptions -- one of which he returned for a touchdown.
Smith joins defensive end Everson Griffen and running back Adrian Peterson as Vikings representatives at this year's Pro Bowl.
