Tyson Smith School: Iowa State
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 238 40: 4.76 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who's been used at
defensive end and linebacker. Posted 51/12/5.5
as a senior. Missed the 2003 campaign after
suffering a broken right fibula in the season
opener. Registered career numbers of 104/6/11
as a junior.
Positives: Solid athlete and collegiate
defensive end who must learn make plays in
reverse. Breaks down well, quickly changes
direction and pursues laterally with speed.
Easily redirects to ball carriers or alters his
angle of attack. Effectively uses hand technique
to stay off blocks, rarely off his feet and
displays the ability to run with tight ends down
Negatives: Slow to key the action or locate
the ball. Driven off the line of scrimmage out of
a three-point stance and handled by opposing
Analysis: While he did a good job
last season at linebacker, Smith must improve
his abilities in space. Offers decent upside, and
a solid developmental prospect who should get
consideration in the late rounds.
