Smith is a 6-3, 235 pound athletically gifted playmaker and pass rusher. Last season he lead the MEAC with 9.5 sacks, he tallied 79 total tackles, and forced 4 fumbles.
In college, he excelled at both the linebacker and defensive end positions. Smith hopes this versatility translates to a roster spot with Green Bay on Sundays. Packers Mini Camp will take place from June 13-15.
