Analysis

Strengths

Plus athlete. Very good foot quickness and footwork in general. Can flip hips and get to top speed quickly. Highly productive junior campaign and has very good ball skills. Has good eyes and feel for the game. Turns and locates the ball downfield and has excellent hand-eye coordination. Competes hard and is a willing tackler. Will jump routes and try to flip the field.

Weaknesses

Level of competition isn't there. Shows tightness at the top of the route. Scouts believe he is a tick slow at the top of the route and will give up separation. More of an off-man corner who is still learning to play near line of scrimmage. Lacks long speed and could be targeted for double moves on next level. Technique as a tackler needs sharpening.

Draft Projection

Round 2 or 3

Sources Tell Us

"The word that comes to mind when I watch him on tape is 'spunky'. He competes hard and he wants to make plays, but his workout is going to be big for him because I'm not sure he has the top-end speed." -- NFC director of pro personnel

Bottom Line

Smith possesses above average ball skills and instincts, but questions about his ability to keep up with vertical speed could push his draft stock down a little bit. Smith's cleanest fit might be in a Cover 2 scheme, but he has starting talent.
