What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about WILL SMITH: Ohio State, 6026 275 4.70. An all-around
type end with experience on the left and right sides. Compact. Has relatively
short arms and legs. Technically sound player. Very quick off the ball.
Explosive. Plays at a good pad level. Strong and quick with his hands into
blockers. Powerful into gaps. Holds his ground well and usually stays on his
feet. Does a good job of stringing out the wide play. Disciplined. Locates
quickly and hustles in pursuit. Gets slowed up a bit by low blocks. Inconsistent
with his shed — when he gets turned out, he can be slow to work through the
block towards the ball. Disruptive pass rusher — more powerful than speedy. Good
bullrusher for an end. Comes strong and hard to the inside, yet shows the
ability to pressure the edge and turn the corner. Has a good arm-under move.
Relentless. Keeps his feet active and his legs driving. Closes strong, though he
lacks the great extended speed of many pure pass rushers. Athletic — used
effectively from a standup position which required him to drop off and cover.
Lacks a little in terms of ideal size and speed, but he’s a first rate prospect
who does a lot of things well.
