Phenomenal. Watching the athleticism and the variety of things he can do out there only makes me wonder exactly how Diaco et al. will utilize his talents come September. Can he actually beat out Spond or force him to move inside? Could he become a third down specialist, rotating with Spond (who I'm theorizing would be better at holding the edge against rushing attacks)? Would there be a special package where the staff uses Smith to either blitz or drop into coverage, as opposed to how we typically deployed Spond or the Star LB?
These are exciting, good questions to have.
That is awesome. He is double and triple teamed, yet he beats the blocks to make the tackle for loss or sack. Awesome.
Jaylon will be special, no doubt about it.
