Strong Points

Four-year starter who has been productive. Good to very good athlete who has speed and can get in and out of breaks quickly. Soft hands, can extend, has a large receiving radius. Willing blocker. Good runner after the catch.

Weak Points

Not ideal size for a tight end or strength and power to be an in-line blocker. Has short arms. Missed the final four games of the 2015 season with an ACL injury. Missed one game in 2016 after being injured in a domestic incident.

The Way We See It

Smith was a productive four-year starter at Florida International. He is a very athletic "move" tight end. He is quick off the ball and a good route runner. Has good hands, can snatch the ball and will compete for the ball in traffic. He is athletic and shows speed and run instincts after the catch. Smith is willing as a blocker but lacks the required size to work inside and he will be more productive blocking on the move than in tight. See him as an eventual starter as a "move" or flexed tight end in the NFL who can become a more productive receiver than he was in college.
