BIO: Three-year starter used at a variety of positions since his sophomore campaign. Registered career receiving numbers of 78/1,138/5 as a senior, also leading the conference averaging 11.7 yards on 31 punt returns with two additional scores. Junior receiving totals were 36/430/3 when he also spent time at quarterback. Broke onto the scene in 2001 catching 53/590/4.
POSITIVES: Quick, elusive ballhandler with the ability to impact the game from several positions. Beats opponents off the line, sells his routes and comes back to the ball, working to make himself an available target. Extends to pluck the high pass out of the air or lays out and makes the difficult grab in traffic. Adjusts to the errant throw and effective running after the catch.
NEGATIVES: Does not stretch the defense and more quick than fast. Has a style more reminiscent of an underneath possession receiver, but not a big, strong wide out.
ANALYSIS: Meeting a lot of expectations as a senior, Smith stepped to the forefront last season after unselfishly filling several roles as a junior. Plays faster and bigger than his athletic numbers would dictate and has the tools to succeed at the next level.
