New Mexico wide receiver Marcus Smith - At 6'2 221 pounds Smith has a thick frame, while not saddled with elite speed he does have decent speed in the 4.46 range. soft hands, good after the catch, quick in and out of his breaks, makes plays in traffic, physically tough kid.

Finished his college career with 153 catches for 2073 yards and 13 touchdowns for a 13.6 yard average.

While he wont be a high draft pick, but  a player the team could target in the 4th or 5th round

In Football, RESPECT is never given freely by your opponent. It must be TAKEN from them...VIOLENTLY

Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

I like Hawkins better.  But Smith could still make it.

He may just ADW. Don't know. But if he goes undrafted we should look into him. Kid could play before he got hurt.

Strengths: Has good size and speed. Shows some game-breaking ability. Runs good routes, and shows soft hands. Gets downfield immediately, gaining good yardage after the catch. Is a good athlete.

Weaknesses: Biggest weakness is mental -- doesn't work hard on every play. Lacks explosiveness off the line and lacks an extra gear to provide big plays. Struggles to use hands well to escape jams. Rarely goes up to pluck balls out of the air. Doesn't catch many off-target passes.

Bottom line: Smith moved from running back to wide receiver in '06 and has all the athletic traits NFL coaches want in a No. 2 possession type. He can help on special teams on both coverage and return units while his NFL team tries to develop his raw athleticism and turn him into a productive receiver.
