A lot of weight was put on the shoulders of Jaylon Smith this season and he's really been inconsistent. Now, he's getting more snaps with the injury to Sean Lee and he's been playing a little better. His trainer thinks this is just the tip of the iceberg for the young backer
"Visiting with Britt Brown, our rehab trainer who worked with him throughout this process, he just says, 'Wait until you see this guy next year. He's going to be a totally different guy than what he is right now.' It's only going to get better for Jaylon," Jones said. "He has gotten better each and every game this season. And I do think he can ultimately be the player that everybody thought he was going to be coming out of Notre Dame had he not had the horrific injury there in the bowl game."
Smith, who was injured in his last game with Notre Dame and then missed the entire 2016 season, has 43 tackles and a sack this season
