Trey Smith: Mock Draft projects him NFL First round

Recommended Posts



If he lives up to the expectations set for him this year, Trey Smith’s decision to stay for his senior season with Tennessee football could end up paying dividends. He continues to be a projected high NFL Draft pick for 2021, something that wasn’t guaranteed if he entered in 2020.

A rising senior guard on the Vols offensive line, Smith was projected to go No. 30 to the Baltimore Ravens in an updated two-round mock NFL Draft by Brad Crawford of 247Sports Monday morning. That’s one of numerous first-round projections now for the Tennessee football star.

Part of what stands out about Smith is his versatility and his size at 6’6″ 335 pounds. He was the best blocker as the Vols’ left tackle in 2018, and he earned First-Team All-SEC honors starting at guard in a spread offense in 2017 and then in a pro-style offense in 2019. If not for blood clots in his lungs shortening that 2018 season, he would’ve been All-SEC that year as well.

Simply put, Smith has proven he can play any position in any system at a high level while producing at a high level in the process, and he has the size to do it. The only drawback are those blood clots, a major health concern. After all, they cut short his 2018 season and kept him out of full offseason activities in 2018 and 2019. I am glad he is coming back but I think he took a risk with the clot issue. I hope that doesn't come back up for him. I am assuming he has some type of insurance on himself like LoL policy if he would eligible. Smith is a great talent and truly hope to see him have a terrific year IF we even have a season that is.
