Limited participant DeVonta Smith makes interesting decision at Senior Bowl
After catching 117 passes for 1,856 yards and 23 touchdowns this season for the Crimson Tide — all against elite competition playing an all-SEC schedule before appearing in the College Football Playoff — and winning the 2020 Heisman Trophy, there isn’t much DeVonta Smith could do to improve his draft stock.
That being said, Smith still made the decision to head down to Mobile for the 2021 Senior Bowl this week.
The standout receiver from Alabama never planned on playing in the game or participating in the practices after he suffered a hand injury in the national championship game, he needed just a half against Ohio State’s defense to catch 12 passes for 215 yards and three touchdowns in the title game, but made the trip to meet with NFL scouts, coaches and general managers.
After already deciding to be a limited participant at the event, Smith made an interesting decision this week at the Senior Bowl as the reigning Heisman Trophy winner has decided to skip the height and weight measurement portion of the event according to Chase Goodbread of NFL Media.
According to Goodbread, Smith plans to hold off any measurements until Alabama’s upcoming Pro Day event.
Some NFL teams may be disappointed by this news but the last time we checked, Smith’s measurables were good enough for him to destroy nearly every defense he faced this season.
