Quick flipping his hips off the line to transition with opponents downfield, effectively reads receivers? eyes, then gets his head back around and correctly positions himself to make a play on the ball. Physically challenges opponents throughout the play, shows good route recognition in zone, and works hard to defend running plays or screens.
Negatives: Seems stiff at times and does not always play to his forty time. Does not show a quick break to the throw out of his plant.
Analysis: Smith has the necessary physical skills to play at the next level but needs to develop his overall game. Offers practice squad potential.
