Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ROQUAN SMITH: Georgia, 6007 236 4.53. Junior entry from Montezuma, GA. The two-year starter is an instinctive inside linebacker who could project as a Will in most schemes. Excellent initial read and react with good footwork. Patient in read with a downhill shuffle and outstanding change of direction. Fits inside gaps with precision and can quickly redirect on cutbacks. Lacks great take-on ability due to a lack of bulk and can get knocked back. Sometimes he is looking for the ball and does not get his hands into the blocker quickly enough. Shows sound technique as he plays with knee bend and normally leads with his hands attacking blocks. Shows shed ability on the move. Good range in pursuit with proper angles to the ball. Makes plays sideline to sideline. Adjusts well moving downhill and laterally. Sound tackling skill showing knee bend and explosiveness into the tackle. Quickness at the snap as a blitzer with tiptop chase ability. Has trouble escaping an edge blocker if he doesn’t win at the snap. Shows elite pass cover ability in both zone and man. Can match up with a back showing good mirror ability and the speed to handle the vertical route. In zone does a good job reacting to pattern pressure and sees the threats and quarterback. Closes voids in the zone with discipline. An undersized prospect who should go in the upper half of the first round. 2017 stats: 137 T, 14 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 8 QBH, 1 FF. OSR:5/22. First round. (A-32, H-10, BP-DNP, SS-DNP).
