Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s long but has a powerful lower body and plays with impressive leverage considering his tall frame.
  • His hand use is excellent; he’s strong in the upper body and consistently swats away blockers.
  • Possesses the length and power to ward off offensive tackles.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Quarterbacks and ballcarriers feel his strength when Smith plants them in the backfield.
  • Smith has heavy hands and uses them aggressively, rocking offensive linemen back. Smith shows the ability to disengage and out-grapple blockers in a phone booth.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Smith isn’t a true edge burner and might be better off kicking inside on passing downs.
  • He’s heavy-footed and lacks any kind of dynamic athleticism in his lower body.
  • Needs to keep his pad level low; pops upright and plays too tall, struggling to maintain leverage off the snap.
