STRENGTHS

  • He displays a hunger when making a path to ball…along with good instincts and football IQ
  • He displays good pre-snap anticipation of plays
  • He possesses quick reactionary skill as plays are developing
  • His quick flexible hips assist him in quick change of direction…and in his lateral movement

WEAKNESSES

  • He lacks ideal size and athleticism looked for from position
  • Not the sure tackling thumping machine as advertised
  • In traffic tends to lose track locating ball carriers
  • Poor at shedding blockers with lack of size & hand technique

PROJECTED ROUND

1st Round (Top 10)

MY VALUE BOARD

OFF MY BOARD

SUMMARY

  • Smith has good anticipation and football IQ…but the problem is he is a tweener…meaning he is an undersized ILB who is an one trick pony…in that he is considered undersized for me…but lacks the overall athleticism to play in space or at OLB

 

  • This limits his versatility and draft status for me…and why he is off my board. With a draft value as 2nd Round (Late) – 3rd Round….he is more of a solid prospect…than an impact player.
