Mountain West's Top 5 Underrated Prospects

Created on Sept. 13, 2013 7:08 AM EST

5. Brett Smith, QB, Wyoming

6-foot-3, 206 pounds

2012 season: 205-330, 62.1%, 2,837 yds., 27 TDs, 6 INT; 114 carries, 248 yds., 6 TDs

Smith is the least-talked-about QB prospect of the 2014 draft, mostly because he plays at Wyoming. But he is a raw talent with great potential. Smith has good size for a QB and all the skills you want in one: a strong arm, mobility and accuracy.

He put up good numbers in 2012 and is off to a great start in 2013 with 8 TDs and 678 yards passing while rushing for 156 yards at 11.1 per carry. He runs a spread offense and can get rid of the ball in a heartbeat with his quick release. At best, Smith could be drafted in the 7th round, but more than likely, he will be competing for a roster spot as an undrafted free agent next year.
