Eli Smith is a towering tackle from the NAIA, playing for Kansas Wesleyan. The 6-feet-8, 292-pound offensive tackle who moves well for a big man. He recently sat down with NFL Draft Diamonds owner Damond Talbot for this Prospect Interview.
He was a basketball player at KWU for two seasons before switching to football.
Smith played eight-man football at West Elk High School but wasn’t a lineman. He weighed 213 pounds when he quit basketball and has gained 74 pounds entering his third season.
Smith is a heavyweight in the classroom, too. He carries a 4.0-grade average, has earned his undergraduate degree and is working on a Master’s degree.
Coming off an astonishing 2018 effort, Kansas Wesleyan was undefeated in the KCAC (10-0), and won the first two NAIA playoff games in program history and become the first conference school to advance to the national semifinals, KWU was tabbed the odds-on favorite to win the title again this fall.
Remember the name of Eli Smith. I know the football fans are not aware of Eli Smith, but trust me NFL scouts are well aware of him.
