Vyncint Smith: 2018 Draft Prospect Interview
Name: Vyncint Smith
Position: Wide Receiver
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
My biggest goal was just to make it to the playoffs and win our way to national champions. Personal goals were to gain 1000 plus receiving yards and score 10 plus TDs. None of these goals were reached, some were close, but more work is to be put in.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
I would describe it as fast, smooth, and consistent.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
My training has risen to a new level at Velocity in Charlotte, NC. Speed, strength, weight, and flexibility all are getting better.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
When I’m watching film, I look at the coverage they play and the keys they take in those coverages. I like to watch how confident they play and how aggressive they like to be on shorter routes.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
I would say first is my work ethic. I like to practice hard because I believe you have to practice how you play. Also, my ability to adjust in many offenses and play fast at my size in any position and also my ability to make plays on contested balls.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I will be bringing work ethic, speed, size, ball skills, and smarts.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I’m just scratching the surface on my abilities and my work ethic and love for the game makes me a great investment for years to come. I’m a person that also looks to make plays on special teams and looks to do anything on the field to contribute to a win.
