Jason’s Official 2018 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Clemson S Van Smith

Van Smith, S, Clemson

Scouting Report:

Smith finished his career at Clemson, where he played in 41 career games, had 164 tackles, 8.0 for loss, 4 interceptions, 3 pass breakups, 3 forced fumbles, and 1 fumble recovered. He has great speed, he is a tackling machine, and a hard hitter. He is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. He is very physical, and does not back down. He a relentless defender, has good instincts, has good ball skills, and is good in coverage. On the other hand, he is a bit undersized, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, i see Smith being a day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
