Overview:

Smith finished his career at North Carolina, where he played in 29 career games, had 187 tackles, 8.5 for loss, and 2.0 sacks. He also had 2 interceptions, 7 pass breakups, and 2 forced fumbles. He has good size, he has good speed, is a tackling machine, is a hard hitter, and a run stuffer. He also gets good pressure on the quarterback, and is a good pass rusher. He is also a very relentless defender, and a ferocious defender. On the other hand, he is not known as a big sack guy, and he missed all but 2 games in 2017 due to a season ending knee injury. With that said, I see Smith being a late day 2, to early day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
