Conference: Conference USA
40 Time: 5.40
Biography: Two-year starter at left tackle awarded all-Conference honors as a senior.
Positives: "Athletic tackle prospect with upside. Displays good movement skills and quick out to the second level. Jolts defenders at the point of attack, stays square, and turns opponents from the action. Keeps his feet moving, patient in pass protection, and flashes power. Gets movement run blocking and can adjust to linebackers on the second level. Bends his knees and shows decent footwork in pass protection."
Negatives: "Lacks blocking balance, bends at the waist, and is on the ground a bit much. Raw in his pass protection skills."
Analysis: Smith is a prospect who flashed terrific skill the past two seasons yet has not pulled together a complete game. He offers ability for the next level but needs time and technique work before he's NFL ready.
