Draft Scout Rodney Smith News
04/08/13 - 2013 Florida State Pro Day: There were 32 teams represented at Florida State Pro Day on March 19. They ran outdoors and the field was damp due to prior rain. It was about 70 degrees. Rodney Smith WR (6-5 1/8, 223 pounds) - He kept everything he performed at the combine. He had a workout with a note that he needs a development year as a wide receiver. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
01/15/13 - EAST WEST SHRINE TUESDAY EAST PRACTICE: It's obvious to see why many scouts think so highly of Florida State wide receiver Rodney Smith with his combination of size and athleticism. But through two practices, he has struggled to play up to his size and needs to do a better job finishing downfield. On Tuesday, he saw quite a few deep ball chances and did an excellent job locating and adjusting his lanky but fluid frame to make a play on the ball. But too often he couldn't complete the catch or would allow the cornerback to out-muscle him, something you don't want to see with a 6-foot- 6, 220-pound wideout. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
09/10/12 - LOOKING GOOD: No matter the opponent, it's hard to argue with an offense that comes out and puts up 35 points in the first quarter, scoring each of the first four touchdowns in five plays or less. The Seminoles then had a methodical, 11-play drive for the final touchdown of the quarter with 49 seconds left. In 2.5 quarters, the Seminoles generated 413 yards offense with a mix of passing and running plays. WR Rodney Smith extended his receptions streak to 27 straight games with a four-yard catch on Florida State's first offensive play of the game. The Miami native followed with a career-long 61-yard touchdown catch, the eighth of his career. The TD pass was also the longest thrown by QB EJ Manuel, and came 39 seconds into the game. Smith finished the contest with three catches for a team-best 77 yards and a score. - The Sports Xchange
