Round Five – 184th Overall (Compensatory)
Tanzel Smart, DT, Tulane (6-foot-1, 296 pounds)
The only player to make an appearance in all three versions of this mock, Tulane’s Tanzel Smart remains a player that should be available at this point in the draft and should provide good value for Miami.
Smart was a highly effective defensive tackle that showed the ability to anchor in against the run as well as rush the passer. He racked up 40 tackles for loss and nine sacks in three years of work and was a two-time All-American Conference first team honoree.
A player like Arkansas’ Jeremiah Ledbetter (6-foot-3, 280 pounds) could be enticing here because he has better physical measurables than Smart, but Smart offers more in the way of potential for early contributions as a situational pass rusher.
