Torrey Smith scouting report

Torrey Smith WR Maryland

Ht: 6’1″

Wt: 205

Strengths:
Decent size. Well-built receiver who can take a hit. Elite speed; a serious deep threat. Gets up to full speed quickly. Has the agility to make guys miss in the open field. Experienced on special teams and should immediately be an impact kick returner at the next level. Reliable hands. Showed steady progress throughout his career. A good kid who was raised in a tough environment but never succumbed to outside pressures.
Weaknesses:
Route running arsenal is limited; typically ran only basic routes and was often used to just stretch the field. Hands are typically solid, but he’ll drop some easy ones from time to time.
Comments:
Smith was developing nicely at Maryland through his first two years, but no one could have expected his breakout 2010 campaign. So is he for real, or was he just a one-hit wonder? He doesn’t have the body of work to compare to A.J. Green or Julio Jones, but he was arguably more explosive than either this past season. The most impressive thing about Smith is that he actually plays as fast as he runs in shorts. He isn’t just a workout warrior, he’ll be a legitimate deep threat at the next level. He may need a year or two to reach his full potential, but I believe he’ll eventually become a true No. 1 receiver.
