Lee Smith   #86 TE

Height: 6-6   Weight: 265   Age: 30

Born: 11/21/1987 Powell , TN

College: Marshall

Experience: 8th season

High School: Powell HS [TN]









Draft 2011

Pick No.159

Selected By: New England Patriots

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 28 (159)

Pick Analysis: Smith has the size, mentality and hands potential you look for in an NFL tight end but likely does not possess enough explosiveness to make many plays in the passing game. However, he likely will find a home on a team that values blocking and tenacity from its tight ends. Drops some routine passes but also plucks and snatches away from his frame and makes difficult grabs. Can get open against zone but lacks the burst and route-running ability to beat man coverage. Tough run blocker, capable in pass pro, and can get even better with some technical refinement. Smith is a mid-to-late-round prospect.
