BIO: Three-year starter and All-Conference selection the past two years. Senior totals included 71/6/8 after 85/3/4 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Productive safety consistently making positive plays. Fast to the flanks and has top sideline-to-sideline range. Quick-footed in reverse, takes good angles to the action and plays with a good degree of explosion. Possesses a good sense of timing and displays solid ball skills.
NEGATIVES: Struggles in man-to-man situations, losing a half-step in transition. Has marginal playing strength and has tackles broken.
ANALYSIS: A tough defender who loves the game, Smith lacks the classic size yet could be effective in a zone situation and offers a special-teams mentality.
