I think Smith has a decent shot a becoming a top 6 winger, kind of like David Jones. The highlights I've seen make him out to be pretty creative.

I can't figure out why Smith wasn't drafted earlier in his career, looking at his stats, he seems to have been productive every year. Its not like JC Lipon who was OK then all of a sudden this year he has big numbers, probably due to better linemates and being older than most of the players.
