BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who led Auburn in receiving as a senior and junior, posting 30/332/1 and 52/705/5 respectively.

POSITIVES: Smith has been moderately productive at Auburn, and he possesses enough physical skills to be a fourth receiver in the NFL. He must pick up every aspect of his game and start to play to be taken seriously at the next level.

NEGATIVES: Lacks the second gear or deep speed. Loses out in battles. Unnecessarily lets the pass get inside him, and drops too many catchable throws.

ANALYSIS: Fluid receiver best in the underneath coverage. Uses his frame to shield away opponents, nicely adjusts to the errant throw, and looks the pass into his hands. Comes back to the ball out of breaks, and effective when he extends to make the reception away from his frame.

PROJECTION: FA
