05/12/14 - A closer look at the Jaguars' pick: Round 5/159 - Chris Smith, DE, 6-1, 266, Arkansas...Versatile defender who can play either end and has played some outside linebacker for the Razorbacks. Jaguars like his quick burst from set position and his ability to wrap up on tackles. Height and length could be some concern, but Jaguars feel his exterior speed rush will overcome that. - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 91/8. Chris Smith, OLB, Arkansas, 6-1, 266, 4.66, 3...Smith played in 43 games and was productive from several positions, although usually defensive end. According to NFLDraftScout.com's Rob Rang, Smith is a thickly-built pass-rusher with enough burst, lateral agility and underrated strength to harass opposing quarterbacks off the edge or when used as a stand-up rusher up the middle. Versatile defender who lined up as a LDE, RDE and even as a traditional outside linebacker for the Razorbacks. Frankly: Looks like a keeper, but at what position? Short for DE and not really an OLB, yet anyway. Responsible and motivated, Smith was a popular team captain, father of daughter and was described as a thicker version of Auburn defensive terror Dee Ford, minus all the talk. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
