Minimal prospects on the Kent State roster. Steve Smith is an explosive center who gets the edge on opponents with his quickness. Smith blocks with great fundamentals but lacks bulk on the inside, which will give him difficulty at the next level.
The Bobcats option-type offense does not develop players for the next level hence the prospects coming from this program into the NFL have been few and far between. We are watching two linemen, both similar in style. Brian Brown is an explosive guard whose quickness gives him the upper edge on opponents. Brown is somewhat effective blocking on the move but lacks bulk and strength, which gives him limited upside for the next level. Defensive end Keith Adamson is a good athlete with nice playing speed. He has the ability to pursue laterally and catch the action from the backside. Also limited by size, Adamson may be best off standing over tackle in a three-four alignment.
