Round 6 (B) Shi Smith - WR - S. Carolina


Recommended Posts

 

Overview
Smith played inside and outside at South Carolina, but will be a slot on the next level. He has an ability to slip and accelerate past press coverage. He will primarily work the first two levels of the field and he's very tough to pull in throws in traffic, but he takes on excessive punishment at times with the way he plays. He has plenty of experience as a gadget player who's able to handle the quick game and jet sweeps. His physicality makes him an interesting option as a possession player with potential middle-round value.
Strengths
  • Unspectacular but rock-steady production throughout career.
  • Has shown ability to handle high volume of targets.
  • Able to slip press fairly consistently.
  • Improved elements of his route-running in 2020.
  • Did a much better job of disguising slants and overall route intentions.
  • Maintains play speed through cuts and stems.
  • Speed to challenge downfield against single-man looks.
  • Able to fight through heavy collisions and continue to play.
  • Has gadget receiver potential.
  • Good burst to elude tacklers on jet sweeps, pop passes and receiver screens.
  • Offers kick return experience.
Weaknesses
  • Leggy and high cut.
  • Absorbs route redirection too readily.
  • Missed at least one game in all four seasons with different injuries.
  • Creates contested catches by drifting in his routes.
  • Needs to fight harder for catch space and work on his ball skills.
  • Inconsistent focus and catch radius.
  • Below average ball tracking downfield.
  • Pie 3

Great person, got his best football ahead of him! Really love this pick! He might be a bit smaller but he plays with fire.
