Chuck Smith joined Dukes & Bell Tuesday to talk about the Von Miller Pass Rush summit, what Atlanta Falcons' pass-rushers need to develop, and his thoughts on Ndamukong Suh.

Chuck told the guys Beasley and McKinley need to develop signature moves.

“The guys need to develop signature pass-rush moves,” Smith said. “Someone has to develop a spin, a cross-chop. But when you think of the Falcons' defensive line, no one has a signature pass-rush move. Everyone at the Pass Rush Summit I was just at was working on signature pass-rush moves, everyone was working on them.”

When asked if Takk McKinley will take the next step this year...

“I hope so,” Smith said. “I had the same questions early in my career. The things that Takk is saying means he has to step up, so let’s see what happens.”

Chuck talked about what Ndamukong Suh brings to Tampa Bay.

“Suh has to be coachable,” Smith said. “I’m talking to NFL players at the summit; he’s not coachable. And he’s just a decent player with a lot of power.”
