Willie Smith

Willie Smith scouting report

Willie Smith OT East Carolina
Ht: 6’5″

Wt: 310

Prototypical height and overall size. Impressive athleticism; a converted tight end/defensive lineman. Two year starter at left tackle who has shown a lot of potential.
Still very raw. May not be able to contribute immediately. Shows good fundamentals at times, but in pressure moments he breaks down. Looks good off the snap but as the play extends he loses his fundamentals; stamina could be an issue?
Teams love offensive lineman who are converted tight ends. It generally means they have a ton of athleticism and will be capable of playing on the left side in the pros. There’s a lot to like about Smith, but he probably won’t contribute until 2012 or later. As a result, he’ll probably fall to day three of the draft, but shouldn’t remain on the board very long into the 4th or 5th round.
