Scouting Report/Player Notes

Big, tall, athletic receiver who is finally gaining steam and relevancy as an NFL prospect after a slow start to his collegiate career. Still, it’s a slow climb for Rodney Smith, who should be/could be one of the most dominant receivers in college football at this point. He was a huge prospect coming out of high school and finally showed some flashes of exactly why he was last year with a career high 561 yards and four touchdowns. Has great size and length, and takes pride in blocking as a receiver.

2011 Notes:

Big, tall receiver who made strides as a sophomore. I think he will go back for a senior year barring a huge breakout season in 2010, but he has all the skill in the world to make an impact in the NFL. Tough to cover because of his size, and you can use him in a variety of different ways in the passing game. Had 31 receptions for 448 yards and three touchdowns in 2010, showing that his status as a top of the line recruit was warranted. Not a fast receiver, really, but definitely has a second gear and can create mismatches down the field. Really knows how to get separation, and has good body control. Definitely a name to watch going forward.
