Hi Jason, great job as always. I noticed there's film of Mount Carmel vs. De La Salle and i was just wondering if you could give an evaluation of how Smith faired against Jamarco Jones because by the looks of it looked like Smith made a few plays against him and Jones looked a little slow while smith looked really quick. Just wanted your expert opinion on that.
IMO, he is not a DE prospect in the 3-4. I say this because is not a quick or explosive player. I feel if he can get bigger (He is not that tall and has a wide lower body) he is more of a run stopper at the NT spot (Question is can he get up to 295/300).
Is Hayes explosive enough to be a DE? Even if not, rotational NT's is a good thing. We could have our DL of the future in the class of 2014. Hayes, Smith, MacDowell, heck maybe even Hand if we play our cards right. Add in Rochell and Matuska from 2013 and our front seven looks strong for a long time.
