Cons

  • Doesn’t take on blockers
  • Needs to add bulk/power
  • Gets overpowered

Overall

Roquan Smith will most likely be a solid nickel linebacker until he can gain some bulk. He is a bit undersized but teams will covet his sideline to sideline range and ability to cover running backs and tight ends. He struggles to take on blockers but can get around them efficiently. He’s great at blitzing and doesn’t miss tackles. He is looking to be a mid first round pick.
