NFL Comparison

scan report

Cam Smith is a remarkably aggressive, sticky, ball-magnet outside corner. He’s not an out-of-this-world athlete, but he’s flashy enough to win over most WRs in the NFL. There’s a lot to like about his ball skills and general awareness of him at the receiving point. He has size and length, and plays off a slump as a tackler, which helps him get to the ball more often than others, but also generates more missed tackles. His 2021 film was more disruptive than 2022, but teams stopped targeting him as often. Speed ​​looks good, but it won’t be his specialty. He’s best in a face-to-face press man role in the NFL, where his emphatic nature can really shine. He’s a CB1 type, but not a true elite monster prospect.
