2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Brad Smelley, FB, Alabama
The Tuscaloosa, AL native has good size at 6'2'' and 229 pounds. He is not going to overpower anyone, either running the ball or blocking for tailbacks. Still, Smelley is not afraid to get physical; he is a solid fundamental blocker. Smelley contributed on special teams (mainly kick coverage) throughout all four years of his college career and he can be expected to do the same in the NFL. His real value will come in making key catches out of the backfield in crucial short-yardage situations. Smelley does a great job of blocking and then freeing himself up in the open field like a tight end, and he has reliable hands. As a result, he should get drafted in April; expect it to be in the sixth or seventh round.
