Therefore at his size, does he have more potential as a number 2/3 tight end at the next level or is this a guy who has the frame to add some weight and make the move to left tackle? Now, it does take a special kind of person to want to make this kind of move, but the end results could far outweigh the potential wait and development. Either way, Smith is a guy who can serve a purpose on an NFL roster either as a TE or as a developmental OT."
By this point he was already a fine blocker, but Marshall finally looked to their big 6-6, 267 pound tight end and he responded by catching 23 passes for 335 yards. Despite his size, Smith headed into his senior season without catching a touchdown pass. That streak finally ended. Even though quarterback Brian Anderson pretty much ignored his tight end early in the season, through 11 games Smith is second on the team with 37 receptions for 343 yards. He has also caught three touchdown passes.
There are better pass catching tight ends in this class and there are better blockers in this class too. However, few do both as effectively as Smith. Coming out of a program that has had successful tight ends, Smith should be a good value for some team in the fourth or fifth round."
And the fact that he presents a formidable target in the 10 yards beyond the Line of Scrimmage adds value, as well.
Smith is projected to go in the very late rounds, but as an End who CRUSHES the enemy in the Run Game and is difficult to defend in the Short Passing Game, I believe his value to the pursuit of Championships will absolutely DWARF his Draft Position.
As always, the preceding thoughts were regurgitated, derivative tripe, adding no value whatsoever, while in fact obliterating intelligent thought and offending the spirit of all decent men. You are now stupider for having read it, and are encouraged, in the strongest possible language, never to expose your eyes to this Site again.
