Weidl calls Smith a playmaker with athleticism, speed and range. The evaluator also praised Notre Dame's speed in the back seven, saying it is more than they have had in a long time. Smith is not draft-eligible, but he is a linebacker in the mold of Ryan Shazier. Sep 9 - 10:09 AM

Notre Dame sophomore LB Jaylon Smith says he wants to be better than Manti Te'o.

"It's something I know I can handle," Smith says. "It's just a matter of waiting and seeing, you know what I mean?" Smith has already drawn praise from Todd McShay, who said the linebacker "kept flashing" when watching Stephon Tuitt. Smith stands at 6-foot-2, 235-pound and boasts 3.1 percent body fat.

During a tape session that he intended to devote to Notre Dame DL Stephon Tuitt, Scout Inc.'s Todd McShay instead found that sophomore-to-be LB Jaylon Smith "keeps flashing."

"Just a pup and needs to fill out, but man he flies around and makes plays!" McShay gushed. Evaluators haven't quite made their way around to Smith yet, who must complete two more seasons before he's first eligible for the draft. That isn't an indictment of his potential. Smith (6-foot-3, 230 pounds), a former five-star recruit, has a very bright future in front of him. He'll be busy on Sundays.
