If we are being honest about it, DeVonta Smith is going to establish himself as the best WR in the league within the next 3 years.

He is so supremely talented and perfect in his route route running and knowledge. People are going to look so silly in letting him drop to 10 just because of his unique frame. That frame does nothing but guarantee he will be one the truly unique all time great players when it is all said and done. Because when you talk about just his game, just what he does on the field in the actual game that is played which determines the winners and the losers in football. When you talk about that, he's flawless.



If there was ever a player who was going to give Rice and his records a run for the money then it's DeVonta Smith. Especially in this 17 game era that he starts his career in.

Is this the dude that weighs 30 lbs less than the smallest defenders he’ll face? Yeah, I’m sure he’ll hold up well in the NFL.

I mean...he's bigger than DeSean Jackson, and Jackson did alright.

If I'm a defensive coordinator and I see a team build around Jaelen Reagor and Devonta Smith then I'm putting Safety help against Devonta Smith. Probably have some flashes of Smith being dominant in year 1 then he'll get banged up. Come back year 2 about 25 lbs heavier but the Eagles will be working in a new QB who he has to build rapport with.

Why wouldn't he hold up? He has been a high volume WR in the SEC playing against eventual NFL corners for years. Taking hits for years. What is this nonsensical belief that his size is going to determine if he gets injured or not? Since when is size an indicator of does and who doesn't get injured? Most of the mostly injured players are of bigger size and bulk. The only relevant question about DeVonta's size in the NFL is he will be able to avoid the stronger larger corners from bullying him at the LOS and disrupting his routes during coverage. That is the only time when his slight frame might cause issue. But he is so damn good without his routes and his moves to get off the line against press coverage that I'm not sure how much of an issue that will ultimately end up playing at the NFL level.



3:30 into this video it just starts showing multiple highlights of DeVonta taking huge hits, dirty hits, right after catching the ball. Not only did he hold onto the ball every time but he also held up and didn't get injured.

Jackson is one of the most overrated wr in the history of the game.
But he still out up some decent numbers.

Not saying he was the best out there, but he was smaller and still had success.

He did. He also usually disappeared 12 weeks of the season. His bumbers looked alot better for the year, based in 4-5 weeks of going off.
But some success vs studly top wr is vastly different
