Henry Louis "Trey" Smith III has gone through much adversity since high school but continues to battle. His mother, Dorsetta, passed away from congestive heart failure when he was at the University School at Jackson in Tennessee. While there, he excelled on the gridiron, winning the Mr. Football Award twice and garnering a first-team All-American and top-10 overall recruit rating nationally. The Volunteers kept him in-state, and he received second-team All-SEC, Freshman All-American, and SEC All-Freshman recognition as a 12-game starter (eight at right guard, four at left tackle). After the season, however, he was diagnosed with blood clots in his lungs. Smith fought through that malady to return for the 2018 campaign but had to stop after seven starts at left tackle as doctors believed the clots had returned. However, additional study of those test results showed that doctors might have actually seen scar tissue from the previous clots. Smith worked hard in the offseason, losing 40 pounds, and he garnered 2019 first-team All-SEC honors after moving inside to left guard, where he started 12 of 13 games played. He was a first-team all-conference selection again in 2020, starting all 11 games at left guard for the Volunteers. He received the Jason Witten Award for leadership on the field and community service off the field, as well as the Fritz Pollard Trophy for extraordinary courage and community values. He accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl. -- by Chad Reuter

When putting together a guard built for an NFL power-based scheme, the blueprint would probably look like Smith. He's big, wide, strong, long and will flash an aggressive streak when he gets geared up. The lack of body control and technique he put on tape suggests it may be difficult for him to overcome his limited athleticism. An offseason of fundamentals work should help Smith become more efficient into first contact, which will really unlock his power at the point of attack. He's been one of the more talked about guard prospects over the last few years but might be in for a bumpy beginning as he adjusts to the athletes and technicians he will face as a pro.
  • Elite size and length for the position.
  • Frame is broad and thick.
  • Very heavy-handed with plus upper-body strength.
  • Able to throw a sack of bricks at opponent when he punches.
  • Has physical potential to become dominant with better technique.
  • Drive power to turn base blocks out of the gap.
  • Can bang and cave his down-blocks.
  • Knock-back pop on both first and second levels.
  • Good job of finding targets on his short pulls.
  • Sets a very firm anchor against bull rushers.
  • Has faced off against a variety of current pro defenders during career.
  • Lack of range shows up in run game and pass sets.
  • Long first step, causing him to overshoot his landmark and lose positioning.
  • Needs better footwork and hand clinch for improved sustain.
  • Will cheat secure block to save time getting up to linebacker on combos.
  • Plays with hitch and outside hands with pass punch.
  • Below-average body control and recovery potential.
  • Loses balance and positioning against rush counters.
  • Struggles to redirect weight after biting on fakes in pass pro.
  • Slide quickness to cut off the gaps is a concern.
  • Has dealt with blood clotting issues.

Trey Smith is a powerful finisher and a mauler that had plenty of Day 2 buzz. Medicals will need evaluating, but this is a potential steal if he can stay healthy.

So Veach may be the first person ever to go into the Canton while still being active

The Chiefs just got the biggest steal of the draft. Congrats @TreySmith73

Surprised he was still available.
Dante84 03:44 PM 05-01-2021

I don't believe Smith has had issues with blood clots since the 2018 season, and he's coming off back-to-back All-SEC performances.

Yeah, I'm not OK with Wylie making this team. Let this guy back up Thuney.

Trey Smith is one of the most beloved #Vols ever. And now, he’ll be angry.

What the Chiefs are getting in the experienced, hulking guard:

Get fucked Wylie

Best way to end the draft. Fuck. That offensive line is fixed. Done.

Veach is the GOAT
DRM08 03:47 PM 05-01-2021
Another monster size guy. Veach building The Wall for Mahomes.
Easy 6 03:47 PM 05-01-2021
Got distracted from the tv and missed this pick, holy crap Burt has gone APESHIT on this O line... this dude is the 2nd rated guard in my guide :-)

Just read this and feel your chub turn to a rockhard boner

"Smith was a man among boys at the collegiate level. He has mammoth size (6'6 330) and the raw power to match. A bully in the phone booth who often resets the line of scrimmage as soon as he fires off the ball. When he climbs to the second level, he absolutely obliterates defenders. When moving out into space, he usually gets where he's going because he's impossible to knock off track. As a pass protector, he's nimble enough that he survived at left tackle before moving inside"

Reid seems to have completely abandoned his "light and nimble" philosophy so prevalent during his time here... we're building an O line room full of MANSTERS
