NFL Draft Scouting Report: Brad Smith

Posted Oct 8, 2005

Brad Smith/Ath/Missouri

Full Name:  Brad Smith  School  Missouri

Ht:   6-2  Wt  208  40: 4.5

Pos: Athletic prospect whose play has recently leveled off at the quarterback position.  Possesses a live arm, zips passes into targets or easily makes the throw on the move.  Sets up with solid footwork, looks downfield and drives passes with a flick of the rest.  Picks up a lot of yardage with his legs.  Puts touch on throws when necessary.  

Neg: Must significantly improve his downfield accuracy and overall pass placement.  Not poised under pressure, incorrectly reads the defense and forces the ball into coverage.  

Analysis: Initially looking like a star in the making as a sophomore, Smith's play has leveled off the past few seasons.  May ultimately change positions and could be used as a receiver.  Underlying athletic skills make him worth a look.
