Za'Darius Smith has played four seasons in the NFL, all with the Baltimore Ravens, where he has made himself known as a good pass-rushing outside linebacker. He has never been a full-time starter in Baltimore, but he has gotten significant playing time in every game he has played in.
This past season, Smith only started eight of the 16 games he played in, but that did not stop him from being one of the best linebackers at getting to the quarterback. Smith had 45 tackles this past season with 10 for a loss, but he was able to get eight and a half sacks. He also forced a fumble and had two passes defensed.
