He’s coming to Athens! With no signed NLI! Yay!
Thank you, Jeff Ulbrich. (And to whomever leaked the Falcons job info, thank you, too.)
Can we all get along now?
By the way, if you read that Bud Elliott linked piece, check out this bit of analysis:
Where Smith will likely make his money in college is at the Will linebacker position in a 4-3 defense. There, Smith will be protected by defensive linemen who will eat up blocks, and allow him to chase down plays and make a ton of tackles. He’ll also be asked to cover backs in the flat, and receivers at times as well. Smith shows good hips in some of his highlights, suggesting he could be a very valuable coverage player; particularly as teams continue to throw the football more and more.
An ILB who’s a legit cover guy? Pinch me, I must be dreaming.
