Conference: Atlantic Coast
40 Time: 4.80
Biography: Posted 20/195/5 as a senior when he became a full-time starter. Junior totals included just three receptions.
Positives: "Big tight end who has flashed speed and athleticism throughout his college career. Effective position blocker who stays square, shows strength at the point of attack, and seals the edge. Turns defenders off the ball and opens running lanes for ball carriers. Solid receiver who can make tough catches over the middle. Consistently finds the open space on the field and displays good eye/hand coordination."
Negatives: Does not block with a nasty attitude. Not a true downfield threat.
Analysis: Smith is a physically gifted tight end who has teased scouts the past three years. He has the size of an offensive lineman but the movement skills of a tight end. Smith possesses the ability to be a third tight end at the next level if he puts the pieces together and takes his game to another level.
