Za'Darius Smith makes Sports Illustrated's "All-Underrated Team"

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 6 years


zadariusrandallcobb While Bud Dupree's stock soars, his former teammate Za'Darius Smith is garnering a little buzz of his own this morning. Sports Illustrated's Doug Farrar named Smith to his 2015 NFL Draft All-Underrated Team:
Defensive End: Za'Darius Smith, Kentucky
When I was watching Bud Dupree play for the Wildcats, Smith kept popping off the tape, as well. He's a 6-4, 274-pound multi-gap player who looks best as a run-stopping end, but can kick inside to tackle and will use high effort to kick off blocks and disrupt plays from whenever he's lined up. Once an NFL line coach gets hold of him and squares away his technique, Smith could be special.
The Draft starts tomorrow night and ends Saturday. []
