Tyler Smith Draft Profile and Scouting Report

Strengths

Simply, Tyler Smith is a bully on the football field. He possesses rare power and strength, showing the ability to move anyone and everyone. Despite being listed at 324 pounds, Smith shows great flexibility, getting under the pads of edge rushers at many different angles. Along with the power he brings in his blocks, Smith also may have the strongest hands in the draft. Once he latches onto you, you’re not getting away.

Weaknesses

There is absolutely zero consistency with Tyler Smith. He could look like a top-10 pick one play and a Day 3 pick the snap after. His fundamentals are also completely off. The team that drafts him will be in for a project, though the project could yield great rewards. He carries his hands by his side in pass protection, for some reason. He also got 13 holding penalties last season, so get ready for him to be flagged early and often in the NFL.
