ANALYSIS: It was clear from the beginning of Smith's college career that he was a good player. As a freshman, Smith averaged 19.9 points per game, 7.9 rebounds and shot 60 percent from the floor. He proved immediately how adept he was at using his massive frame to create shots for himself by scoring in double figures in 29 games, including 17 games with 20 or more points. Although not a great leaper, Smith has a well-developed post game with a soft touch around the basket to complement his sound footwork. During his collegiate career, Smith worked hard to improve his game even though he experienced immediate success. He has lost 25 pounds since his freshman year and has shooting range out to 18 feet, although he can not shoot well off the dribble. He boxes out extremely well and anticipates rebounds well, averaging 9.4 rebounds a game as a senior. He had 14 games last year with 12 or more rebounds. His scoring average as a senior was 17.6 points a game, but the lower total in comparison to his freshman year reflects the depth of what has become a solid college team every year. Smith is an active help defender but lacks foot speed to keep up with more athletic players. He also needs to work on his free-throw shooting, as he shot but 64 percent from the free-throw line as a senior. Although he had an impressive college career against top-notch competition, there are some questions about Smith that lower his draft prospects. Smith lacks a true position to play in the NBA. He is an undersized power player who will struggle guarding taller players and quicker players. He also has a tendency to get in foul trouble and must make his outside shot more consistent. At the same time, Smith's collegiate successes will make some team take a chance on him in the second round.
