Scouting Report: Roquan Smith
School: Georgia Position: Inside Linebacker Class: Junior Height: 6-0 Weight: 225 lbs Projected Draft Round: 1-2
One of the best tacklers in college football, Smith has both the natural instincts and the football smarts to avoid blockers and find his way to the ball carrier. His ability to identify the play quickly, identify the gap where the ball carrier is coming through and avoid blockers on the way to the ball are unmatched by any player in college football. Smith will be sought after by 3-4 defenses looking for a tackling machine in the middle of their defense. One of the best leadership skills in the draft.
