"I watched him a lot, and I think I can follow in his footsteps and become more like him," said Smith, who had 10 ½ sacks in two seasons at Kentucky and can rush from both the edge and the interior. "He just signed a new contract, and this team right here is replacing the other guy like Pernell McPhee. And I can tell you this: A lot of people are going to be hearing from Za'Darius Smith as a Baltimore Raven."
As much as I dislike the Ravens as a fan, I hope Smith is right as he's one of the best guys you'll meet in the football world. Best of luck to Smith and the rest of the Kentucky players as they try to make rosters for the 2015-16 NFL season.
