Smith has the size and athleticism for the wide receiver position at the major level of competition. Although we fail to see elite playing speed, this prospect flashes the burst needed to split the defense and outrun defenders into the end zone. This is a big possession ball catcher who should be able to support added bulk over time provided quickness isn't compromised. Does a very good job playing zone coverage off the hash; displays good route awareness and overlap range; demonstrates the ball skills needed to make the high point interception. His athleticism suggests potential to do a variety of jobs successfully as a special teams player. Releases off the ball aggressively using his size and quickness to elude press coverage; runs the basic tree routes effectively, showing the ability to get in and out of his break to gain separation when running short/medium routes. His smooth running style is deceptive as he flashes the ability to get on top and separate when running deep routes; does a nice job tracking deep balls; is very effective working against zone coverage; knows when to settle and not cover himself.
