Summary: Smith has plenty of experience, speed and versatility, a combination of traits that gives him a shot to make plays in the NFL. He has outstanding foot quickness, which helps him get open and make defenders miss after the catch, and he has the speed and ball-tracking ability to consistently beat defenses over the top. Smith was also an excellent gunner on Ohio State's special teams.
Stacking up: Smith doesn't appear in the Top 5 WR rankings of any NFL Network media analyst, which actually doesn't mean much because this is thought to be a very deep class of WRs. But Smith is the 33rd-rated player on Daniel Jeremiah's list.
Big stage, big game:Smith had four receptions for 137 yards and three touchdowns vs. Wisconsin in the Big 10 Championship Game and had two receptions for 87 yards and another score in the Sugar Bowl vs. Alabama.
