Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Boasts an impressive wingspan and heavy hands to engage and dispose of blockers, using an array of rush moves to tear through blocks. Smith also lines up as a 1-technique lineman inside on obvious passing downs, using his initial quickness and power to penetrate the A-gap and create interior pressure.

WEAKNESSES: Is not a quick-twitch rusher and rarely beats offensive tackles with speed off the edge.

IN OUR VIEW: While not a dynamic threat, Smith plays motivated and has the versatile skill-set that will be attractive to pro scouts.

--Dane Brugler (11/13/14)

Player Overview

As a first-year starter as a junior in 2013, Smith finished with 2.5 sacks and 6.5 tackles for loss, but he has far exceeded those totals, leading the 2014 Bulldogs with 7.0 sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss.
