Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Verified at 6-foot-6 ½ and 235-pounds in February of 2024, Smith possesses prototypical size and elite length off the edge as he’s primarily positioned as a 5-technique in an even front in addition to flashing some ability as a standup edge in situational pass rushing downs. Exhibits good foot and body quickness for his size, showing the ability to bend the edge and win with a combination of quickness and athleticism off the line of scrimmage. Appears to play with above average play speed but is still obviously growing into the position in regards to striking and physicality at the point of attack. Will need to learn how to utilize his length and play to his frame as he continues to add weight to what is better described as a basketball physique at this point of his physical development. Possesses all the physical characteristics collegiate programs and NFL organizations seek at the defensive line and or edge position but must continue to refine his skill set from a technical and play strength standpoint to reach his full potential. Projects as a high level multi-year starter at a Power Four program with the ability to one day mature into a Day-1 or Day-2 NFL Draft choice. Will more than likely take a year or two to develop at the collegiate level before seeing considerable snaps.
