Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Has quick strides to pick up steam in a hurry vertically with strong cuts in his routes to create some separation vs. defenders. Has made a career out of getting behind the secondary for big plays, using his deep speed and also contributing on special teams coverages.

WEAKNESSES: Frustrating prospect because he shows the striding speed to stretch the field, but also inconsistent tracking skills, which makes him late to adjust and leads to focus drops. Aside from go routes downfield, he is unproven as a route-runner. His speed is mostly straight-line and his lean frame looks near maxed out.

--Dane Brugler (11/7/14)

Player Overview

Probably still best known for his one-handed catch two years ago in the season opener vs. Miami (Ohio), Smith has been more of a big-play threat than consistent pass catcher for the Buckeyes in his career.

He is one of the best vertical threats in the country, averaging 27.2 yards per reception, which ranks second in the FBS behind only Miami's Phillip Dorsett.

He finished second on the team in receiving each of the previous two seasons, setting career-bests in 2013 with 44 catches for 660 yards and eight scores as a junior.

01/20/2015 - 2015 Senior Bowl: 10 offensive prospects to watch: WR Devin Smith, Ohio State...A nine route monster, Smith has been one of the best deep threats in college football with 12 touchdowns on only 33 receptions in 2014 - that's a touchdown every 2.75 catches, best in the NCAA. But he has been very inconsistent on non-vertical routes and needs to prove himself as more than just a downfield target. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
