Draft Scout Rodney Smith News
08/17/14 - WR Rodney Smith caught the game-winning 2-yard touchdown on a nice grab in the corner of the end zone with 11 seconds left. Smith, who played four games late last season after spending most of the season on the practice squad, certainly looks the part at 6-5, 220. He has dropped a lot of balls in training camp the past couple years, but the Vikings still like his potential. Saturday, he not only held on to the ball, but he also got his toes down just inside the out of bounds stripe. With four catches for 55 yards, he helped his battle with Adam Thielen for the fifth receiver spot.
10/23/13 - WR Rodney Smith (hip) didn't practice on Wednesday. He's a former practice squad player who was inactive in his only game with the team last week.
09/01/13 - WR Rodney Smith was waived by the Vikings Saturday.
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
