Brian Smith, DE, Missouri Update

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey,

Someone was asking about Missouri DE Brian Smith and I said I'd get in touch with his agent to get the latest. Here was his reply:

"The update on Brian is the following Scott. He did position drills for Jacksonville, Miami, New York Giants and Tampa Bay on 3/22 at Mizzou second pro day. Was not completely 100% but performed well and worked through some soreness during the drills. Jacksonville had there D Line coach in attendance. He also did 21 reps on 225.

The hip bone has healed and he is just getting acclimated in running, jumping and cutting. He is not at 100% at this moment but will be there by draft day. We are looking to schedule a workout at Mizzou for April 2nd or 3rd were he will complete all the running workout test. This will be confirmed on Mon. or Tues of next week once we get with the doctors and medical staff.

He has visits set up with Chicago and Jacksonville. Cleveland is planning on setting up a visit next week. We have also had interest significant interest from Miami, Tampa, Giants and 49ers. I have been contacted by 15 teams inquiring about him."

That is interesting.  I wonder where the Bucs see him playing at in the pro level?

He's a very good pass rusher but like ADW I wonder what they see him doing.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

At 230 he's really not the 3-4 OLB type.

He's 6'4" so maybe the theory is that they can add some weight to him and get him to be a rotational type pass rusher but we've sort of got Chukurwah to fill that role.

I'd bet that he's going to sprinkle it in a little bit..........can't wait to be honest.

He already started sprinkling it in last season.  I wouldn't be surprised to see it a lot more.  maybe upwards of 30% of snaps..
