“Smith was a productive edge rusher for Northern Illinois in 2018. Due to being undersized however, the junior will have to move to off linebacker in the NFL. Over the course of 2018, he totaled 61 tackles with 26.5 tackles for a loss, 15 sacks and one pass broken up. Smith could be used as a designated pass-rusher to blitz in obvious passing situations.”
I was told about Smith, and now know what people were talking about! Smith is a bulldog, and to block him would be a nightmare. He’ll be drafted late but wherever he ends up until he proves he can get into the rotation the team will have picked up one helluva special teams player.
