Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Good awareness of receivers around him and keeps his eyes on the quarterback. Good quickness to break downhill on the ball. Terrific ball skills. Good hand-eye coordination to pluck the ball and has good body control to contort in the air to adjust. Explosive leaper who is surprisingly effective in jump-ball situations due to his athleticism and timing. Good vision and agility to pick up yardage after the interception or as a returner. Averaged 12.9 yards on seven punt returns as a senior and also has some experience returning kicks.

WEAKNESSES: Smaller than preferred and too often plays to his size. Struggles to disengage from blocks and though he can deliver a pop when he lowers his shoulder, Smith shows just average strength for the pull-down tackle. Can get fooled by savvy quarterbacks who can move him with their eyes and create larger passing windows. Takes questionable angles to the football.
