RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The older brother of 2016 second round pick Jaylon Smith, Rod played in one game with the Seahawks as a rookie before being cut and catching on with the Cowboys for the remainder of last season as primarily a special teams player. Converted to fullback in the offseason due to his size and willingness to lay a hit, Smith could see plenty of snaps in 2016 if he can win a starting role at that position but his touches would remain very limited as he's tasked with opening holes for Ezekiel Elliott and keeping Tony Romo upright rather than getting yards on his own.

2015

An undrafted free agent out of Ohio State, Smith has no chance of making the roster. His best hope is the practice squad, and that might not even happen.
