More on Will Smith

More on Will Smith...
This was before the rumours about Udeze's shoulder injury surfaced:

"There is a terrific debate raging right now over the top two defensive end prospects in next month's draft. Ask 10 personnel directors or scouts about the top guy at the position and five will name Will Smith of Ohio State while the other five cite Southern California standout Kenechi Udeze. There is an increasing possibility now that both will be chosen among the top 12 players next month. Udeze had a strong workout this week, clocking 40-yard times of 4.78-4.81, posting a 39-inch vertical jump and a long jump of 10 feet, 5 inches, while completing 25 "repetitions" of the standard 225-pound bench press. But two scouts who attended the workout told ESPN.com that Udeze, who a few years ago dropped 80-plus pounds so that he could play end, almost looked too thin at 273 pounds. Smith was 267 pounds at his campus workout, torched the 40 in the 4.6-range, had a vertical jump of 38½ inches, a long jump of 9 feet, 9 inches, and did 30 bench press "reps." It is tough to choose between the two. Said one scout: "I give the slightest edge to Smith. He reminds me of (Saints defensive end) Darren Howard, but with more pure pass-rush ability. Watching him on tape, he's got that natural skill, closing speed, the knack for getting to the passer. But I like the other guy a lot, too, and it's a tough call."
