Strengths: Ideal size for a Safety prospect – Smart, savvy and instinctual football player – Takes very good angles to the ball – Not fooled often, trust his eyes – Likes to come up and assist in run support and can play physical, but at the same time seems natural playing “centerfield” – Reads the QB very well and gets a great jump on pass routes – Not often in the wrong position – Solid fundamental tackler – Good ball skills, breaks up a lot of passes – Incredibly consistent production – Has the ability to play both safety spots – Smith is just an overall fundametally and instinctually sound player – Very coachable – Team Captain and exhibits a very solid work ethic.
Weaknesses: Not as fast or athletic as other DBs – Will not be able to turn and run with faster WR – Takes him longer to get going, relies heavily on his instincts – What safety position does he play in the pros?
