Apart from Nawrocki's critique of Smiths mechanics, Nawrocki adds this assessment of Smith:
Not a student of the game. Nonchalant field presence ; does not command respect from teammates and cannot inspire. Mild practice demeanor; no urgency. Not committed or focused; marginal work ethic. Interviewed poorly at the Combine and did not show an understanding of concepts on the white board. Opted not to compete at the Senior Bowl and has approached offseason training as if he has already arrived and it shows in his body with minimal muscle definition or strength. Has small hands and glaring ball security issues (32 career fumbles). Really struggled handling the snow in Pinstripe Bowl (took two safeties) and will be troubled by the elements. Needed to be coddled in college; cannot handle hard coaching;
Nawrocki then makes a strong prediction about Smiths future. Smith is a gimmick, overhyped product of the system lacking the football savvy, work habits and focus to cement a starting job and could drain energy from a QB room; Nawrocki writes. Will be overdrafted and struggle to produce against NFL defensive complexities.;
