Biography: Two-year starter who finished with 78/8/1 as a senior and 72 tackles as a junior.
Positives: "Small but explosive weak side prospect who covers a lot of area on the field. Moves well on his feet, fluid out to the sidelines and gets depth on pass drops. Breaks down well, fires through the gaps up the field, and slides off blocks to get to the ball carrier. Uses his hands well to protect himself, quickly changes direction, and shows skill in pursuit."
Negatives: Struggles getting off blocks once engaged and easily disrupted at the point of attack. Shows minimal force on the blitz.
Analysis: Smith is an athletic prospect with the ability to make plays in space. He's a backup weak side linebacker who must earn a living on special teams.
