BIOGRAPHY: Spent significant time with the first team as a senior after being used as a reserve his initial three years in the program. Posted career-best totals of 39/453/5 last season after 21/223/3 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Well-rounded receiver best suited to play in a West Coast offense. Quickly releases off the line, displays sharpness running routes and gets separation from opponents. Slides back into the open space of the defense to make himself an available target.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the second gear or top-end speed. Must improve his blocking.
ANALYSIS: Offering solid size/speed numbers, Smith elevated his game and consistency as a senior. Potentially a fourth receiver at the next level who shows some run-after-the-catch ability.
