It’s safe to say that no college football player had a better 2020 season than Alabama’s DeVonta Smith. The sure-handed senior receiver had more than 1,800 yards in reception and 23 TDs in his final year with the Crimson Tide. He also became the first receiver since Desmond Howard (1991) to win the Heisman Trophy. And then, to top everything off, he was named the CFP national championship game’s Offensive MVP after leading Alabama to a dominating victory over Ohio State.
Next up for Smith is making an appearance at the Senior Bowl. Although he is not expected to play, Smith will have a chance to meet with NFL scouts and coaches, including Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores, who will coach one of the Senior Bowl teams.
Can Smith improve his draft stock enough for Miami to select him with the No. 3 overall pick? The Dolphins are clearly in need of more weapons to help out Tua Tagovailoa. And, of course, it was Tua’s TD pass to Smith in the 2018 national title game that gave the Crimson Tide that season’s championship. Hmmm…
