BIO: Junior college transfer who made an impact at Oklahoma State the past two seasons. Posted 29/7/5 in eleven games as a senior after 31/7/3.5 during his initial campaign with the program.
POSITIVES: Athletic defender with both size and growth potential. Breaks down well, plays with leverage and gets push up the field. Displays good hand technique, collapses well from the outside in defending the run and redirects to the action. Strong in his upper body, moves well laterally and has a burst of speed in a straight line.
NEGATIVES: Not quick or explosive off the snap and lacks sustained speed. Easily wired in blocks and very slow to shed once engaged at the point of attack.
ANALYSIS: Smith is a solid athlete that does an effective job rushing the passer or defending the run. Though he showed flashes of ability, he's yet to pull his entire game together or take it to another level. Needs to turn up the intensity and make football a priority to have a serious shot at the next level.
