Smith gets to the front side shoulder and seals his guy inside.

Smith gets to the second level and seals the 'backer.

Those videos say that Smith is an undrafted free agent, and he wasn't. He was drafted in the 6th, iirc.

EDIT: Good stuff, though.

From what I've observed, other than his rookie year, the Texans have kept him on the right side. Has anyone seen him working on the left side since? Admittedly, I have been the most anti-Duddard person since he's been on this team, but I cannot figure out why Smith hasn't moved in behind W. Smith at LG.

Shelly Smith is the biggest mystery to me on this team and has been since his rookie year.

I thought Shelly Smith really looked good Saturday night at LG, which is his natural position given his impressive athleticism. He was very quick getting into the second-level and going after 'backers.
The big rookie guard didn't do too badly for his first NFL game. I think he's still clearly more of a power than a zone type OLineman, and not just because of his size.
Now I think we got concerns at RT because both Butler and Newt got embarrassed in pass-blocking. Of course it's early and nobody should panic just yet, but I'm hoping to see some improvement in next weeks game. On the positive side, their run-blocking was solid.

I know I seem to be doggin Caldwell quite a bit. I actually think he's a good dude. It just takes that certain mean streak to play in the trenches. I don't think he has it.
Conservative Gary is already replacing 2/5ths of his offensive line. The pressure to win now is as gr8 as it's ever been.

If his left guard struggles the way he did last year, my money is on him waiting on the vet to turn it around before introducing a new face to the OLine.
