2019 #50 Minnesota Vikings - Irv Smith, TE, Alabama
NFL Draft Scout
OUTLOOK: One of the breakout performers of the 2018 college football season was Smith Jr., who exploded onto the NFL radar with 710 receiving yards and seven touchdowns (a school record), while averaging 16 yards per catch. He brings NFL pedigree with him, as the son of former New Orleans Saints first-round pick, Irv Sr. but teams will have to weigh whether his junior campaign was a fluke. The athletic traits certainly appear to be there, so as long as his size doesn’t hinder him at the next level, Smith has the makings of being an ample weapon.
