Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay believes Wyoming QB Brett Smith "is not very good" and understands why he was not at the NFL Combine.

"I've done four games of him, it makes total sense why he was not there," McShay said of Smith. "It would be unfair to the other quarterbacks if Brett Smith" was at the Combine. On the same podcast, ESPN's Mel Kiper called Smith draftable. The Wyoming passer has earned some comparisons to Johnny Manziel for his improvisational style, but while Manziel is a bit more fluid, Smith seems a bit more robotic with his movements.

Wyoming QB Brett Smith measured in a 6-foot-1 and 3/4 of an inch at the school's pro day.

Smith also had 10 inch hands, recorded an "official" 4.51 forty, and a broad jump of 10-foot-8. The Wyoming passer will draw comparisons to Johnny Manziel, although his movements are a bit more robotic than Manziel's improvisational style. Smith was notoriously known as a great athlete while in school and he should have been invited to the Combine.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler considers Wyoming junior QB Brett Smith to be the biggest snub of the NFL Combine.

To round out his list of Top-5 snubs, Brugler mentioned USC LB Morgan Breslin, USF ILB DeDe Lattimore, Michigan State LB/S Denicos Allen and Stanford OG Kevin Danser. Smith declared for the draft after his junior season, and that looks to be a mistake. While he has obvious talent -- including good mobility and Johnny Manziel-esque creativity -- Smith isn't pro-ready at the moment. Hopefully for the prospect, some team will take a late flier and give him a few years to develop at the end of the bench.

Wyoming junior QB Brett Smith did not receive an invitation to the NFL Combine, according to Murphy McGuire.

Smith declared for the draft after his junior season, and while some like his mobile style and see talent, the selection committee does not seem to agree. Smith has a bit of a Johnny Manziel-like play style, but not receiving an invitation to the Combine is not a good sign. Obviously many prospects succeed who are not in Indianapolis, although we are surprised by the news.

Wyoming junior QB Brett Smith declared for the 2014 NFL Draft.

The Wyoming football program is undergoing a bit of change with the firing of Dave Christensen, now Utah's offensive coordinator, and the hiring of North Dakota State's Craig Bohl. Smith is a very intriguing talent, utilizing a combination of mobility and quick release. It might sound crazy now, but we wouldn't be surprised if some teams rank Smith over Johnny Manziel.

Wyoming junior QB Brett Smith completed 21 of 36 attempts for 246 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in a 52-22 loss to Colorado State.

Smith is one of the lesser known top quarterbacks in all of college football. We doubt that changes this year, but could heading into his senior season in 2014. Smith loves to move in the pocket and throws from multiple angles.

Wyoming junior QB Brett Smith is attending the Manning Passing Academy for the second straight year.

The clinic takes place from July 11 to 14. "We have stayed in touch since about me coming out there," Smith said. "It means a lot to be invited back and get the opportunity to be around the Mannings, who have had a lot of success at the highest level of football." Smith has drawn praise from evaluators, but he isn't likely to enter the 2014 draft.

Brett Smith’s athletic prowess has been a boon for Wyoming’s spread offense, which could earn the QB all-freshman honors in the MWC.

Heading into bowl-bound Wyoming’s final game of the regular-season season at Colorado State, Smith is second in the Mountain West Conference with an average of 260 yards total offense per game. He has thrown for 2,304 yards and 16/6 with another 555 yards rushing with 10 TDs. Thanks in huge part to his efforts, the Cowboys have a shot at going 8-4 in the regular season after a 3-9 showing a year ago.
