ESPN's Steve Muench says Notre Dame junior LB Jaylon Smith is a "game-changer with a rare blend of speed, power, football smarts and motor."
"While he's at his best chasing and making plays in pursuit, he also flashes the ability to jar and shed blockers when teams run at him," Muench wrote. The analyst praised Smith's chasing ability and noted it will come in handy Saturday against Clemson's Deshaun Watson. "Smith's 4.5 career sacks may not wow many people, but he's a far more effective pass rusher than the numbers suggest and that's whether he's rushing off the edge or between the tackles," Muench wrote. "Finally, he's capable of stalking and limiting the impact the athletic Watson makes as a runner in this game." TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline projects Smith as a top-15 pick. Oct 1 - 4:51 PM
