Height: 6-6. Weight: 303.
Projected 40 Time: 5.31.
Projected Round (2018): 2-3.
Notice the weight at 303? Look for Smith to be a possibility as Kyle Shanahan is looking for the more athletic guard who has the capabilities to carry out the assignments of his run system.
Garry Gilliam is getting paid what appears to be way to much because he fits the description that Shanny is looking for, as does Braden Smith.
“Smith is a solid player who is well-balanced as a run blocker and pass protector. In Week 2, he was beaten for a sack by Clemson's Christian Wilkins, a future first-round pick, but Smith also had a lot of nice plays against Wilkins and Clemson nose tackle Dexter Lawrence. After that Smith was rock solid for the Tigers. He has a pro skill set with size, strength and athleticism. Sources say that Smith is receiving second-day grades for the 2018 NFL Draft.“
