Featured Prospects

Selected by: Baltimore Ravens
Round: 2
Pick (Overall): 26 (58)

Pick Analysis: The Ravens give Joe Flacco a legitimate vertical threat with the speed and explosiveness to blow the top off coverage. Smith's speed will certainly free up Anquan Boldin on underneath routes, while also allowing Flacco to push the ball down the field. Smith's explosive return skills could also create some big-play opportunities in the kicking game.

Overview

Smith has big-play speed and enough size to develop into a starting NFL receiver who can stretch a defense. Shows great burst off the line and the top-end speed to consistently get behind the secondary but is susceptible to press coverage and is still improving his ability to make over-the-shoulder grabs and come down with jump balls. Not a refined underneath route-runner. Loses speed in transition and doesn't have a real natural feel for finding creases in zones. Has leadership qualities, is a hard-worker, and is a physical run blocker. Smith's speed, upside and mentality make him an early second round prospect.


Strengths

Smith possesses outstanding straight-lined speed and good size measurables. Explodes off the line of scrimmage. Flashes the ability to high-point the football. Has the second gear needed to threaten a defense vertically. Eats up cushions and can track the deep ball well. Plays with passion, exhibits great effort while run blocking, and has intangibles.

Weaknesses

Must improve his route-running and ability to consistently separate. Takes too many steps at the top of his stem. Ideals down in and out of his breaks. Still learning to identify and get to soft spots in zone coverage. Hands are adequate but won't consistently bring down the tough catch. Not overly elusive in space.

Grade

7.5
