The offensive line seems to be one of the deep positions in the 2021 NFL draft. Here a just a few of the top prospects: Creed Humphry, Penei Sewell, Christian Darrisaw, Rashawn Slater, Samuel Cosmi, Jalen Mayfield, Liam Eichenberg, Spencer Brown, Alex Leatherwood, Jackson Carman, Daniel Faalele... Would you like us to continue? It is extremely deep. Another prospect to look out for is Trey Smith. In fact, he was seen pancaking another player today at the Senior Bowl. It was beautiful to watch.
Trey Smith was the number 1 overall player in the 2017 recruiting class. He is 6-foot-6, 299 pounds. He is a massive offensive lineman. Smith had offers from Clemson, Ohio State, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Oregon, and others. He chose to go to the Tenessee Vols. In his freshman season with the Vols Smith made the Freshman All-American team, and he also earned second-team All-SEC honors in his first season. In 2018 Smith was diagnosed with Blood Clots that could have ended his playing career for good. In 2019 he was cleared to return back to playing football with no more signs of blood clots.
In 2020 he played the entire season and allowed only one sack with just one penalty. Smith is a strong offensive lineman. He is considered a "people-mover," because of his strong upper body. He is solid in the passing game as well as the run game. He loves to drive players forward during the run game. He loves to take advantage of his opponents by throwing them off balance and negate them from moving. That was seen today at the Senior Bowl. He is actually athletic for being a big man. He can move around pretty quickly for being a 300 lbs offensive lineman. He is a stud if he can stay healthy. Smith could fall into the second or third round and be an absolute steal for teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, and New York Giants.
