Kentucky senior DE Za'Darius Smith’s "performance against LSU will raise red flags in the scouting world," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.
Smith had Kentucky's only sack of the night, but it wasn't all good news. "Smith was exploited all night not just by the Tigers highly rated left tackle La’el Collins but also any tight end or fullback he faced," Pauline wrote. "Scouts have had concerns about Smith’s overall athleticism, a weakness exploited by LSU on Saturday." That outing will dampen Smith's ascending stock. ESPN Insider's Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl wrote earlier this month that they were thinking about raising their preseason late-fourth, early fifth-round grade due to Smith's improved play. The JUCO transfer collected 59 tackles, including 6.5 tackles for loss and six sacks, in his first try against SEC competition last year. Oct 21 - 5:52 PM
