Rodney Smith  

Height: 6-5   Weight: 225   Age: 29

Born: 3/11/1990 Miami , FL

College: Florida State

Experience: Season









Draft 2013

Pick Analysis: There?s no doubting Smith cuts an imposing figure, with his 6-foot-6, 219-pound frame dwarfing most college cornerbacks at the line of scrimmage or downfield. But scouts have seen players like this before at Florida State, most notably Greg Carr, who has made an impact in the Canadian Football League after failing to stick on an NFL roster after going undrafted in 2009. Smith has superior quickness, strength, and hands to Carr, however.

Smith was a four-star recruit out of Miami?s Archbishop Carroll High School, catching 10 touchdown throws in a run-based offense and intercepting four passes as a senior. He eventually worked his way into the rotation at receiver late in his freshman year after spending time on special teams units, making his only catch (for seven yards) against Wake Forest. His role in the offense increased throughout his sophomore year, as well, as he earned eight starts and caught 31 passes for 448 yards and three scores, mostly in the second half of the season. As a starter for 12 of 13 games played in 2011, Smith led the team with 561 receiving yards while bringing in 36 passes and four touchdowns. In 14 games as a senior, Smith caught 38 passes for 524 yards and three touchdowns.
