Joins a very long list of guys that titans fans thought were better than they are.

He may turn out to be a JAG, but he showed quite a bit of promise during the last stretch of the season.

He's def not very good 

I've watched him play and have the same opinion.

 

He has flashed on a few plays but overall doesn't do much.

While not the end of the world its also not ideal to have TE1 and TE2 both coming off injuries and neither are available for OTA's, hopefully when training camp rolls around in 2.5 months both Walker/Smith are cleared and ready to go.

delanie sucked his first 2 years two. 

 

jonnu is ok. he will get better. 

 

really hope its being misreported that it was an ACL.. but the recovery time does seem reaaaally long for an MCL at this point.

Jonnu Smith was demonized harshly early on because he dropped a pass or two and because Walker was out injured. 

 

He's also a pass catching H-back trapped in a run heavy offense

 

 

BTW, that 2 yard pass that turned into a 61 yarder was MM's longest pass play of the season and really boosted the yds per attempt!

Walker and Smith both need to have big years for MM to have any chance of staying.  He's best across the middle of the field, has always had a rapport with the TE's and the OC was the TE's coach so we know the scheme will be TE friendly (several players have alluded to it as well).  

 

Smith is a weapon if used right.  I'm much more concerned about their ability to block for the run-game without a FB or even a decent blocking TE.  Hopefully one of these UDFA FBs shows out in preseason.

It wasn't just about a couple drops;  over the first half of the season, Jonnu's run blocking was consistently horrible in a scheme that relied heavily on TE blocking.    He was one of several factors that contributed to a highly ineffective running game.

 

From what I saw on film, Smith was as much a liability as Kline early in the season.  But Jonnu eventually stepped it up and played really well down the stretch, whereas Kline's improvement was merely adequate.

No doubt IMO that Smith, if used properly, can be a viable weapon on offense.  What he isn't is a strong inline blocker. He is someone who can take advantage of mismatches and would work well in two TE sets where the other guy is the #1 with better inline blocking skills (better all around player).  That was the reason Hokenson was such a good looking prospect.   Smith is not that kind of guy. 

 

Ultimately I don't see his value being that great for the team since we now have three viable WRs and should get them on the field more.  But when we do go 2 TEs.  Smith can get us a few catches and an occasional big play.

It’s interesting to note that there’s 2-3 FBs we picked up for the offseason.
