Recent News Draft analyst Chad Reuter believes Notre Dame junior LB Jaylon Smith is a early favorite for All-American honors at the linebacker position.
"Smith has already won the Butkus Award as the nation's top high school linebacker -- now he's looking to win the Butkus Award that goes to the top collegiate linebacker. While he doesn't have exceptional size (6-foot-2, 235 pounds), Smith is an excellent tackler. Few can match his quickness to the ball and he has great natural instincts," Reuter wrote. The Notre Dame prospect has made an immediate impact since arriving in South Bend, as Smith has been a starter since his freshman season. Last season, Smith earned Notre Dame Defensive Player of the Year honors and was a finalist for the Butkus Award. Smith lead the Irish in total tackles (112) and recorded nine tackles for loss.
