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

Overview
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.
Strengths
  • 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.
Weaknesses
  • 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.

We can do whatever the fuck we want in future drafts. Crazy skill weapons? Go get them. All defense? Fine.

I'm geeking out over this line.
When they cut Fisher and Schwartz.....I legit couldnít have dreamt of a better line than what we have now.

It's been a rough week-and-a-half for the 'Veach Is Gonna Get Mahomes Killed!' Brigade. Hug one if you see one.

Well we still need a LT behind Brown. So one of those guys is going to stick, I think.

One bad game from the OL and Veach acquires enough talent to make damn near 2 quality OLs

I don’t see how either does. We have to cut/PS 5-6 that are currently signed got get to 9-10 total OL on the roster (currently have 15 signed).

Easy (PS): Durant, Tega Wango, Williams

Next Tier: Rankin, Wylie, Allegretti, LDT, Smith

They aren’t going to get rid of Rankin as our #4 OT in my opinion, and let’s assume Smith is safe. That likely spells the end of Wylie and Allegretti at a minimum, and maybe LDT if they think Long is he starter at RG. Hope we can get Allegretti onto the PS.

Winnebago is a development tackle so it'll depend if they keep 3 or 4.

Rankin is a terrible OT, Tega could beat him out.

Wouldn't be surprised if this guy starts, has to beat out a doctor who spent tons of time helping with covid and a guy who is Injury prone and coming out of retirement. If he has a good camp he could easily be our rg
