He earned AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors in the first week of the 2010 NFL Season for a performance against the Denver Broncos that included 7 tackles and an interception that sealed the win for the Jaguars.

On November 28, 2010, Smith became the Jacksonville Jaguars all-time leader in tackles, surpassing former safety Donovin Darius.

Daryl Smith has passed the 100 tackle mark in seven straight years as of 2011.

Smith missed the first six games of the 2012 season due to injury. He was placed on the injured reserve-designated for return list on October 25, meaning he was eligible to return in week 15. He returned to play the New England Patriots in week 16 and recorded four tackles.

Smith became a free agent on March 12, 2013.

Baltimore Ravens

Smith signed a one-year contract with the defending Super Bowl XLVII champions Baltimore Ravens on June 5, 2013. The signing was meant to strengthen the Ravens' Inside Linebacker core following Ray Lewis' retirement, and losing Dannell Ellerbe to free agency. Smith soon took control of the starting job. During Week 3 of the regular season, Smith had his first interception return for a touchdown in a 30–9 victory against the Houston Texans. On December 9, 2013, he broke Ray Lewis' franchise record for most pass deflections in a single season (17) with 19. Smith ended his first season in Baltimore with a team leading 123 tackles and erased any doubts about his ability to still play at a high level after the injury that kept him sidelined most of the 2012 season.[5]

On March 14, 2014, his 32nd birthday, Smith re-signed with the Ravens on a four-year, $16.1 million contract.

Daryl Smith recorded 118 tackles, 3 sacks, and an interception in the 2015 season for the Baltimore Ravens. On March 3, 2016, Smith was released by the Ravens.
