04/17/13 - WKU’s Quanterus Smith visits with Eagles, will visit Giants...Western Kentucky defensive end Quanterus Smith has visited with the Philadelphia Eagles and will visit with the New York Giants this weekend. Smith (6-foot-5, 250 pounds) was at the NFL Scouting Combine, but unable to do drills due to a left ACL injury. He returned to Indianapolis for further medical evaluation last week, and checked out healthy.Smith was in Texas rehabbing his knee when Western Kentucky held its pro day on March 20. Smith is a pass-rushing defensive end, and was a productive player before the ACL injury cut short his senior season (he finished as the Football Bowl Subdivision leader in sacks per game with 1.25 - he had 12.5 sacks through 10 games in 2012). - Gil Brandt,

02/23/13 - Only quarterbacks hold more value in today's NFL than pass rushers and thus, Western Kentucky defensive end Quanterus Smith, who led the country with an average of 1.25 sacks in 2012, is certain to attract plenty of attention from scouts... even though he won't be able to workout at the Combine or potentially at all before the draft.Smith was leading the nation with 12.5 sacks when he tore the ACL in his left knee against Louisiana-Lafayette on November 17. He underwent surgery to repair the ligament November 29 and hasn't been able to workout sufficiently since. In fact, he told that he doesn't plan to start running on his knee until he leaves the combine early next week and isn't sure that he'll be able to work out at Western Kentucky's Pro Day.As such, teams may have to draft him based on the faith that he'll recover from the injury, making the medical reports clubs receive on him as critical to his draft stock as with any player in the 2013 draft.The 6-4, 253-pound Smith lacks the bulk teams prefer at defensive end and is the first to admit that he needs to get better at setting the edge against the run. He is, however, a talented pass rusher who stepped up his game against top competition, including posting three sacks against the vaunted Alabama offensive line in the second game of the 2012 season for both clubs. - Rob Rang,
