Dawuane Smoot was touted early this year as another top-flight defensive end coming out of Illinois. Add in the fact that NFL defensive guru Lovie Smith would be his coach for his senior year, and some projections before the season had Smoot going in the first round. The senior’s star has faded somewhat, as he’s a consensus middle round pick after picking up just five sacks his senior year. However, he has the frame and athletic ability to be a plus pass rusher at the next level without sacrificing much in the run game.
But how do you feel about the pick? Vote in the poll below and let’s talk in the comments.
