Jaylon Smith is a flat-out playmaker, good enough that 247 Sports ranks him as the top linebacker in the class of 2013. 

Watch the video to see which NFL player Smith’s skills compare to.

Considered by 247Sports composite ranking to be the No. 2 overall recruit and the top outside linebacker of the Class of 2013, there is plenty of buzz surrounding linebacker Jaylon Smith.

The 6'3", 218-pound standout from Indiana has the potential to play at outside linebacker or inside linebacker in a 4-3 scheme, and despite a lack of competition at Bishop Luers High School, he garnered plenty of interest during the recruiting process.

A five-star recruit, Smith has a surprising blend of speed, strength and explosiveness, as evidenced by his 4.44-second time in the 40-yard dash. And his length is the icing on the cake.
