BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors after his junior and senior seasons. Passing totals last season included
64.4%/2,620/19/6 after 61.2%/2,226/19/7 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Smith offers a terrific head for the position as well as quarterback intangibles yet lacks the physical skills to be anything
other than a third passer in a West Coast of offense.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the deep arm, cannot drive long passes and gets a little wild with his accuracy the further downfield he throws the
ball. Loses velocity on throws when asked to pass on the move.
ANALYSIS: Smart, poised short range-timing passer with marginal arm strength. Patient in the pocket, scans the field and locates the
open wideout, displaying good vision and awareness. Looks away from covered receivers, does not force the ball into coverage
and accurate in the short or intermediate field. Knows where his receivers are on the field, and does a terrific job commanding
and controlling the offense.
