Lecitus Smith, OG
School: Virginia Tech University | Conference: Atlantic Coast Conference
College Experience: Redshirt Senior | Age: ?
Height / Weight: 6’3” / 314 lbs
Projected Draft Status: 4th-5th round
Player Comparison: Nate Davis
Lecitus Smith came to Virginia Tech as a tight end and converted to left guard following the 2017 season. There, Smith became a three-year starter for the Hokies. He has a decent frame for the offensive line but lacks the desired arm length for the position. Smith projects to be developmental depth in his first year, but can be a starter in year two or three. Scouts say he works best in a zone-run scheme.
- Aggressive blocker and competitor.
- A natural knee bender that helps him stay in control.
- Quick feet help mirror defenders effectively.
- Good pocket passing composure.
- Great football IQ and strong work ethic
- Inconsistent hand placement.
- Can rely too much on length then he stops his feet. Gets driven off-balance.
- Run-blocking needs improvement.
- Below-average arm length.
- Feet sometimes don’t follow his hands.
Let’s see his work

How Will He Fit On The Team
With the departure of Brandon Scherff and the release of Ereck Flowers, the guard position has become a need for the team. This is also coupled with how a rash of injuries forced Washington to rely on their interior line depth. While Smith may not come in as the immediate week 1 starter for either guard position, he should develop into an eventual starter. Smith would provide Washington a combination of blocking intelligence and nastiness.
