One thing Smith has always shown is leg strength and upper body strength when a lineman or defensive player gets a hand on him. He doesn't go down very easily or he fights through the sack attempt to run it. Now, only if he can calm himself enough to fight through it, run, stop and make a throw similar to Big Ben.
Big Ben's advantage with shrugging off tacklers is that, well, he is big.
I would have liked to have seen Smith put on some more size than he has, but perhaps that would affect his mobility.
