Smith (knee) didn't run routes at Tuesday's offseason practice, but he expects to be a full participant in training camp this summer, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
His skill set and body type are anything but conventional for a tight end in the NFL; there is plenty more to his game that gets coaches excited. The son of a former NFL first-round draft pick of the same name, he has the ability to multitask in an every-down role as an integral part of a varied offense. Projects as a hybrid receiver/run blocker able to find seams and stretch plays for extra yardage. Lacks the classic length of a prototypical tight end and may need more weight to handle bigger edge rushers. Needs to become a good source of consistent production at the NFL level.
Long Range Potential:
Talented, multidimensional tight end with upside.
