Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about CAMERON SMITH: Southern Cal, 6020 238 4.73. Four year starter from Roseville, CA. Steady player who is solid against the run. Instinctive with read and react to fit inside and off-tackle gaps. Flashes a tight scrape to the edge and can square up a tackle. Adjusts to cutbacks and makes plays working downhill on the backside. Can be an explosive tackler with knee bend and finish. Gathers well to tackle in space. Powerful attacking blocks and is quick to bend and shoot his hands to get separation. Strong with straight up blocks. Can slip blocks on the move working outside. Has a good understanding of positioning in underneath zone coverage. Takes controlled drops and balances routes with a feel for pattern pressure. Quick to react to the quarterback delivery key. Needs work on man-to-man coverage. Smith improved his quickness this year after dropping some weight. Limited athletically but he still has some upside and is a smart player. Should be a solid backup with a chance to develop into a starter. 2018 stats: 81 T, 7.5 TFL, 1 sack, 4 PBU. Edge speed:left 2.34, right 2.16. OSR:10/15. Seventh round/ PFA. (A-32 3/8, H-10 3/8, BP-15, SS-4.25).
