Pos: 
Tough, instinctive linebacker who gets the most from his ability. Plays disciplined football, quickly reads and diagnoses the action and gives effort. Constantly around the ball, takes proper angles and displays good change of direction. Fires up the field to defend the run, wraps up tackling and always works to get involved. Moves well laterally and flows to the action. Solid open-field tackler who picks up and stays with coverage assignments.
Neg: 
Lacks bulk and gets easily blocked from the action. Possesses an average closing burst. Makes plays more with his head and heart than with his athleticism.
Analysis: 
Smith is a throwback of sorts, as he has a great feel for the game and gets the most from his ability. He does not possess big upside but could be a very good backup on the inside of a 3-4 alignment or even as a Mike linebacker.
