Courtney Smith

Courtney Smith scouting report

Courntey Smith WR South Alabama
Ht: 6’4″

Wt: 220

Strengths:
Elite size and overall build. Decent route running ability in shorter routes. Knows how to use his body to shield defenders.
Weaknesses:
Limited experience against top competition. Lacks the speed to be a deep threat. Hands are inconsistent. Didn’t dominate lower level competition like someone with his size should. Some character concerns; transferred from UAB to Southeast Louisiana to South Alabama due to various off-field and academic issues.
Comments:
You can’t teach size, which is why Smith will get a serious look from the NFL. However, his inability to remain with one program and his lack of experience against top competition will limit the willingness of teams to take a chance. While he lacks elite speed, he definitely has the potential to develop into a quality possession receiver.
