The answer to that question was a third-team All-American that recorded 15 sacks during his final season at Louisville.

Despite his great senior season, Smith was not projected to be a first-round draft pick. Actually, he was projected to be taken during the second round at the earliest and as late as the fourth. This left Eagles followers scratching their collective heads.

Upon further investigation, some Eagles fans began to warm to the idea of Smith coming off the egde in green and white while bringing youth to a position that could definitely use it.
