Smith is a dominant blocker who mauls the opposition at the point of attack. He stays square to his opponent, bends his knees and plays with good pad level. He uses his size to his advantage in running situations and is able to drive back the opposition to create space to gain positive yardage on the ground. He has a powerful lower body and easily holds the action at the line of scrimmage.

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||Smith is capable of playing either the right or left side, but he projects to play the left side down the line. The team could choose to play him at RT and in order to keep Levi Jones on the left side this season. The Bengals now can start to rebuild their shaky offensive line with a young, talented lineman.|
