INJURY RISK

Long-Term:

2/5

1/5

Smith had to have surgery to treat a dislocation of his right index finger, which obviously presents some level of concern based on his position. His finger is reportedly not fully back to normal, but it was good enough to catch balls at his Pro Day, and he is expected to return to full form. No evidence exists to suggest major concerns, so as long as he doesn’t experience a setback any time soon, we feel confident about the status of his hand. The other concern with Smith is weight, as he currently stands at 6-1, 166 pounds. Relatively light receivers like DeSean Jackson and Will Fuller V still weigh in the 175-180 range, so Smith’s size is somewhat concerning. Still, we expect him to fill out his frame, and probably end up weighing 10-15 pounds more a few years into his career. He is only 22 after all. Overall, somewhat increased short-term concerns with his finger and weight, but these will go down over the longer term.
