Texans Scouting: Kiper Projected Smith as a Mid-Round Project QB

ESPN”s Mel Kiper delivered his thoughts on Rusty Smith this week on ESPN. com.  He related Smith’s four-year starter experience at FAU, in combination with the team’s pro style offense.  Additionally, Kiper commented:

Although Rusty Smith is a no-name to many, even avid followers of the NFL draft, he actually jumped onto the radar of personnel folks in 2007 when he really took off as a sophomore at Florida Atlantic. That year, he started to show off a big arm and put up some solid numbers. With 32 touchdowns and just nine interceptions, he also piled up huge passing totals. The problem was he essentially leveled off. As a junior, his statistics fell, but the bigger concern was that his accuracy didn’t really pick up. Then, as a senior, his accuracy fell off again, and he dealt with injuries. I had him as a guy who could go in the middle rounds but as more of a developmental prospect because of questions about not only his development but also his funky delivery.
