“A gifted pass-rusher with an explosive first step, Smoot keeps offensive tackles on their heels with his ability to win with speed, power and redirection quickness.. ” –Todd McShay
An explosive first step, violent hands, speed, power, and a relentless motor. Extremely active player through the whistle. Will need to work on completely his array of pass rush moves, but should go on day 1 of the draft.
