Rating: - 0.8281 Composite Score

How he fits:

Very similar to Jeff Jones. A patient zone runner who hits the gap hard and has very good vision to make the cutback. Runs with good lean and has a compact frame. Quicker than fast.

Chances to play in 2014:

Limited. Minnesota has a potentially crowded backfield situation in 2014 with David Cobb, Donnell Kirkwood, Roderick Williams, Berkley Edwards and Jeff Jones all vying for carries. Smith is also a year removed from an ACL tear and could be served by earning some class separation from the other backs.
