Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DEVONTA SMITH: Alabama, 6002 170 4.52. Three-year starter, Amite, LA. Two time All-America, All SEC, and winner of the 2020 Heisman Trophy, Biletnikoff, and Paul Hornung awards. Left Alabama as the program’s and SEC conference’s all-time leader in receiving touchdowns with 43. Also set the school record for career receiving yards. Led the country in catches, yards, yards after catch, and touchdowns as a senior while adding even more production as a punt returner. Simply put, Smith put together one of the most dominant seasons in the history of college football. The former five-star recruit was always highly regarded but there was only one ball to go around the previous three years in an offense that was hosting multiple first round talents all over the place. He shined when he was the spotlight guy in a way that none of them did, however. His body type may give initial concern to some, but he is as tough and competitive as they come and it is refreshing to see him couple that with a pure blue collar approach. He is all business, all about winning. That combined with his elite burst in and out of breaks, sticky hands, and ability to create after the catch can make him an elite feature receiver at the next level. Moves as if he is on roller blades. Accelerates to his top speed in a hurry and will force the defender to play catch up. Can cut and turn while moving at his full speed. Seamless transitions will create separation as both a route runner and ball carrier. Big and strong hands. Rarely lets one hit the turf if he can come in contact with it. Will make all the routine catches and throw in the spectacular grab. A true gamer in every sense of the word. Plays tough and stronger than his size suggests but will also avoid contact whether he is carrying the ball or getting off the jam. Intelligent player who is a coach’s dream when it comes to drive, work ethic, and consistency. Has a very slight, skinny frame that falls way below the NFL standard for the position. Even though his lean body mass is there, he cannot hide the fact that he weighs what he weighs. Presence against contact will be an issue. Top end speed in the open field does not match his next-level burst and acceleration. He can be caught from behind. Won’t break through quality tackle attempts and won’t make a big difference as a blocker. 2020 stats: 117-1856, 15.9 ypr, 23 TD, 11-237 PR, 21.6 avg, 1 TD. First round. (A-31 1/2, H-9 3/8, VJ-NA, SS-NA).
