Bio: Three-year starter who posted 43/13/6 as a senior after 43/11/2.5 the prior year. Former All-Conference player. Has a history of knee injuries.
Pos: Explosive defensive lineman who makes plays in pursuit. Built low to the ground, plays with good pad level and gets off the ball with a great first step. Alters his angle of attack, has a closing burst of speed and makes plays out to the sidelines. Can drop off the line and play in space.
Neg: Controlled by a single blocker and rarely gets much push up the field. Has tackles broken. Considered lazy by NFL scouts.
Analysis: A prospect who flashes ability, Smith has displayed limited consistency and is labeled an underachiever. His quickness, ability to play with leverage and change-of-direction skills makes him a potential three-technique lineman.
