Ted Thompson needed to look at Appalachian State to find a linebacker he liked, and he found one in A.J. Smith. A leader on his defense, Smith appears to be a solid player and a hard-hitting linebacker and there's nothing wrong with guys like that on your team. He had 144 tackles last season alone, which appears to be a very high number during a collegiate season. Actually, he had more than 500 tackles during his collegiate career. Wow. Smith isn't the fastest guy in the world though, and if we see him suited up on gamedays it will likely be on special teams, at least this season.
