Comparison

Jaylon Smith Dallas Cowboys

Lean, athletic off-ball linebacker prospect with varied on-field experience. Long-levered athlete who passes the eyeball test. Still owns plenty of frame space to add mass in college. Varied on-field experience as a three-phase playmaker in Georgia big-school football. Versatility combines with 46-foot triple jump and 11.46 100 from sophomore year to provide strong context to impressive overall athletic profile. Functional play speed is very good for the linebacker position and has shown as a ball-carrier as well. That athleticism fuels terrific pursuit ability and should translate to seamless transition to dropping in coverage vs. high-major opponents. Stellar junior year included 700-plus scrimmage yards and three blocked kicks. Was poised for a big senior year, but a knee injury a few games in ended it prematurely. More full-time reps at linebacker will foster awareness and diagnostic skills, especially vs. the run. Possesses the type of athletic profile that has produced numerous early-round NFL Draft picks at the off-ball linebacker positions in recent years. That profile fuels a high long-term ceiling that could lead to the early rounds in his particular case as well.
