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.

03/13/2015 - Ohio State Pro Day: Another top-100 prospect, Smith (6-0, 196) ran a 4.42 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine and decided to stand on that time. But he did join Heuerman running routes and catching passes from former Ohio State quarterback, Troy Smith, who hasn't played in the NFL since 2010. Heuerman and Smith caught the ball well according to those in attendance and both solidified themselves as second day prospects. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
