BIOGRAPHY: Moved to the starting lineup as a senior and posted 42/10.5/6. Junior totals included 30/11.5/9 when he started one game.
POSITIVES: Undersized college pass rusher who makes a lot of plays up the field. Displays good first step quickness, keeps his feet moving on contact and fluid changing direction. Immediately alters his angle of attack, makes plays down the line of scrimmage and rarely off his feet. Displays adequate moves with his hands getting off blocks.
NEGATIVES: Driven off the line scrimmage on running plays or handled at the point by a single blocker. Marginal speed in pursuit trying to string plays out laterally.
ANALYSIS: Smith made his mark during a brief two-year stint at Oregon State yet lacks top measurables for the next level. He has possibilities as a situational pass rushing linebacker stood up over tackle.
