DJ Smith, Green Bay Packers, 186th Pick, 6th Round, 2011 NFL Draft

Smith, DJ Appalachian St. 5106 239 4.71
Four-year starter. A sideline to sideline linebacker who can slip a block and make a play. Quick getting downhill and stacking the inside running lanes. Will get a look at both the inside and outside linebacker spots. Outstanding instincts and productivity with 525 career tackles. Smith joins former Dallas Cowboy linebacker, Dexter Coakley, as the only two defenders in Mountaineer history to go over the 500 tackle mark. He was the only FCS linebacker on the Butkus watch list. Plays with quick hands and feet. Quick reactions. Bends his knees and explodes from the ground up. Fluid moves to get to his drop area in zone. Sits down and squares up. Gets depth. Good short man coverage. For complete report see Ourlads Guide to the NFL Draft.
