Jaylon Smith the Notre Dame pass rusher is a stud, and let’s be honest the guy is a top 5 talent on the field. The problem is Smith is injured and might not be available to play all of 2016. If this is the case, he could drop big time. Last year, Oregon cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu fell to the seventh round when the Browns drafted him.
Smith is a way better talent, but can a team truly draft him knowing he is out the entire season?
Difficult day for #NotreDame LB Jaylon Smith, who had his medicals. Ankle & knee nerve issues, teams believe he’s out for 2016 — at least
