“From there, depending on what the offensive line is giving me, it's going to be a bull rush or I'm going to take the edger or coming underneath. I love pass rushing, though. I have a lot of fun doing it.”'

I'm just not seeing a guy who's going to be a force in the NFL. He plays way too high, and looks like he lacks power. In the Senior Bowl videos, some of the better tackles locked him up and he wasn't going anywhere. He looks like a very raw player who is going to need both conditioning and position coaching to develop. As always, I hope I'm wrong; but, there were RB and WR available in round 4 that we could have used a lot more.
Fans are getting waaaaay ahead of themselves. He is a project. He has some skills, but he needs to get stronger and a lot of refinement. Bobby Skinner on Talkin Giants, who does good work on breaking down players, does a good job breaking down what Smith does well and what he needs to work on.
Hopefully, Graham can coach him up enough and utilize him to maximize what he does well. But he definitely needs to time to develop and get stronger.
This is an interesting article because it reinforces two things I've been hoping for with Smith. First, he's raw, really raw. Second, he can be coached.
Also interesting that he's put on about 17 lb\yr over the course of his college career. He's still thin, even at 260 on that 6'6" frame, so there may be room for even more development.
I can't see him really being ready for 2021; but, toward the end of this season and for 2022 he should start coming into his own. He shows some extreme athleticism with this 41" vertical jump, so I'm hoping he really develops into a top notch DE\EDGE. He could end up being a steal if all things fall into place for him.
Carson53: Good for Andrew and good for us. Given everything it would really suck to miss on a #4 overall pick at LT. Guys like that are supposed to be solid picks and he is.

alohar2: Does anyone know the exact nature of Rudolph's foot injury? I don't recall DG/JJ describing the injury. We recall Strahan had a lis franc- tough recovery. Rudolph offers the Giants the most complete TE since Shockey. Iowa State has several terrific TEs.

AmaniToomerToeDrag: Wouldn't it be so 2020 for the Giants to not only make the playoffs, but to pull off the greatest playoff push in NFL history? Beat the Bills in the Super Bowl. One could dream. Speaking of Dream, what a stud that Daniel Jones is at QB. 😉Later Haters😉
