Strengths Weaknesses

Positives: Has the initial quickness to turn the corner but isn't an elite quick-twitch athlete. Consistently high motor and good long speed to close. Versatile enough to drop and could be viewed as a 3-4 linebacker. Stays with blocks and holds up relatively well for his size. Mature player who is committed and well-prepared. Negatives: Short for the defensive end position (6-2 1/2) and lacks the ideal length to compensate. A second slow to react to screen and misdirection. Missed time with a dislocated elbow in 2011. Fails to use his low center of gravity to his advantage to gain leverage. Can improve hand use.

Player Overview

Smith doesn't have the ability of 2011 first-round pick Aldon Smith (Missouri, no relation) and gets the job done with effort and energy. A hard worker with size and bulk limitations in addition to small hands and short arms, Smith needs to be in a perfect scheme to pay dividends and will be considered by wide-aligned 4-3 defenses and as a 3-4 pass rusher.
