Drafted in the 8th round (237th overall) by the Seattle Mariners in 2013 (signed for $20,000)
Smith will get pushed up draft boards in a class thin on college shortstops. At 6 feet and 194 pounds with decent athleticism, he is a solid all-around player who doesn't have any above-average tools. He's a consistent defender who makes the routine plays. He has a compact swing and puts the ball in play, but he has well below-average power. Scouts like his leadership, and he profiles as a utility player.
