Tre’Quan Smith may hands down be the most underrated receiver in this year’s draft. As someone who watched him play his entire career, I can tell you he’s one of the most clutch, reliable receivers in the game. With a year of eligibility left, Smith decided to declare early after his redshirt junior season, amassing 2,748 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns throughout his career.

Out of the 49 wide receivers at this year’s combine, Smith had the 14th fastest 40 time and the 3rd longest broad jump. Here’s how his combine results compare to some of the NFL’s best.

One of Tre’Quan’s best skills won’t show up in the stat book. He’s an excellent downfield blocker and he helped extend plays all of last season. Check out his blocking below that lead to a UCF touchdown.

With so many of UCF’s 2017 schemes designed to leave Smith wide open, a lot of the scouts are questioning his route running ability. Despite his 4.49 40, they also say he lacks explosiveness off the ball. With that being said, his game film doesn’t lie. Whoever picks him up is in for a treat and he would be an absolute steal past the 3rd round.
