Bradley "Brad" Alexander Smith (born December 12, 1983) is an American football player (see the infobox to the right for positions) for the New York Jets of the National Football League. He was drafted in the 4th round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played college football at Missouri.

Smith is the son of Phillip and Sherri Smith. He attended Chaney High School in Youngstown, Ohio. He was a two-time all-state selection for football and twice was selected as the All-City Offensive Player of the Year. He threw for over 2,700 yards in his career and 34 TDs. He also rushed for over 1,200 yards and 19 TDs. Brad also played basketball and was an all-city selection. He was given the nickname "Ninja Fists" for his quick release of the ball.

After being redshirted in 2001 he became the four-year starter (never missing a start) for the Missouri Tigers. His redshirt freshman year he established himself as one of the elite quarterbacks in college football becoming only the second player in Division 1-A football history to ever pass for 2,000 yards and rush for 1,000. He received numerous national and Big 12 Conference freshman honors, leading the Tigers to a 5-7 record. His sophomore year he led Mizzou to an 8-5 record and their first bowl game since 1998. In 2004 the Tigers went a disappointing 5-6 after beginning the season ranked number 17 by the Associated Press. His senior year he led the Tigers to a 7-5 record and his second Independence Bowl in three years and the first Mizzou bowl victory in 7 years.
