GREG SMOOT
Position: DT
Class: Sr
School: Connecticut
Conference: I-A Ind.
Ht., Wt.: 6'2½, 290
40 Time: 5.05
Grade: 3.13

BIO: Starter the past four seasons totaling 25 tackles with five tackles for loss and two sacks as a senior after 26-6-3.5 the prior year and 34-6-2 as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Tough, durable lineman who plays with exceptional effort. Explodes off the snap with a quick first step, keeps the pad level low and gives opponents problems. Works his hands, stays on his feet and wedges through blockers, getting up the field. Keeps driving forwards, competitive and always around the ball.

NEGATIVES: Lacks bulk, engulfed at the point by larger lineman or driven off the line. Cannot quickly change of direction and displays minimal pass rushing skills.

ANALYSIS: Slight chance to fit in as a backup in a 4-3 alignment or at the very least a practice squad player.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
