Smith is a good leader who's hungry to win and driven to succeed. He's tough as nails, and exactly the kind of guy you want in a leadership position. Smith's mechanics are solid and he can be accurate when he knows where he wants to go with the ball, but he's still a work in progress. Like Ponder, he's a bright player but sometimes doesn't process his reads quickly enough. -- Todd McShay
