Scouts say that he has a solid first step and has the discipline to get his hands up to deflect passes when he doesn’t get home to the quarterback. Scouts are also impressed by his lateral movements which is paramount for defensive linemen, has a good motor, and is a team leader. He has the skills and technique to win at the point of attack which comes from also being a wrestler for the Trojans.
Smith is a prospect that has the potential to be a four or even five-star prospect with another strong season in 2022 as his stock continues to rise.
