Draft Rewind 2014: Marcus Smith, Philadelphia Eagles

Marcus Smith, Philadelphia EaglesWhat Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about MARCUS SMITH: Louisville, 6033 251 4.68. Two-year starter. Was a high school quarterback who made the move to linebacker right away in college. Edge defender who plays with good leverage and demonstrates outstanding pass rush skills. Has a good jolt with his hands. At best on the edge where he is tough to get around as he uses his hands well and can be disruptive. He tracks well, adjusting the quarterback in pass rush and is explosive coming off the edge. Projects as a 3-4 outside linebacker with outstanding pass rush potential. Will need to be in the right scheme, but has some skills that are looked for in an outside linebacker. The Louisville scheme has him roaming around pre-snap, letting him rush the passer from numerous angles and positions. A good athlete in space. Was a Walter Camp 2nd-team All-American and a 1st-team all-conference selection. Struggles in man-to-man coverage. Will need time to develop in all phases of linebacker play. 2013 stats: 42 T, 19 TFL, 15 sacks, 4 FF. Edge speed:left 2.03, right 1.94. OSR:8/43. Second/third round. (A-34, H-10, BP-23, 10-1.64).
