Smith had a very productive career at Michigan, where he was their workhorse back, with 495 carries, for 2235 rushing yards, 22 rushing touchdowns, plus 38 receptions, for 251 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. He has good speed, he also had good vision, he is a good pass catching back, and he is an offensive playmaker. He also makes defenders miss with ease, he breaks tackles with ease, and he is a very powerful back. He is a bit undersized, and he tends to get stuffed at times. With that said, I view Smith as a late round pick at best, but than likely he will end up going undrafted.
