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.

Yea, but we just hope that Niang is the one that steps up. He has the most upside. I don't think that Chiefs really want Remmers to start at RT all year.

Have no idea what Long is going to be this 1st year back. Could be a stud, could be rusty. I guess Smith can even play OT.

Plenty of depths and options, which is great.

There are numerous stories of guys who weren't medically cleared by several teams, but the team that cleared him and drafted him ended up getting a pretty damn good player.

I hate his fucking guts, but Gronkowski was one of those players.

I think teams look for more reasons not to draft a guy than reasoning for drafting a guy.
They do, there's a whole video of Nick Saban talking about it.

This move is the final nail in the finesse lineman coffin.

Look around you, Chiefs fans. All of a sudden we a have a big, mauling, powerful group of OL.

The Chiefs, once again, are ahead of the curve. Defenses are going small and light, Chiefs are going big on the OL.

Other teams are forced to reach. We have Veach

Some said it couldn't and wouldn't be done

Brett Veach said shut up and hold my beer

And yet, we still have Mahomes-Kelce-Hill

The typical answer to this like would be to stack the box. That definitely won’t work.

I hate to say it but I was envious of the Raiders O line at least when we played them last year because they had a wall around Carr. I said during both games if Mahomes had that kind of protection he would throw for 500 yds and 5 TD’s every game.

I guess we will find out this season. 😀

It's scary for other teams thinking pat can drop back and his second read isn't who the fuck is coming for me.

CEH is going to rape this year.

Do you think the Chiefs will be good?

I feel like they’ll win the majority of their football games.

Just look at the major over commitment required to slow down Mahomes.

Bring 4, drop 7. Get pressure with 4 while doubling Kelce and Hill. Hope someone else doesn’t get open. Dare the Chiefs to run the ball.

Seriously, what do you do now? No chance teams bring a light box against this OL.

Respect the run? Okay cool. Let’s go back in time to 2018.

I love this, and as previously mentioned CEH should go off.

I wish we also had a Derrick Henry type of dude to compliment, but Darrel should be just fine.

The holes on this team are pretty minimal right now.

I think we sign Breeland and a veteran edge rusher (probably Ingram). That pretty much fills out the defense unless we pick up a surprise cut.

On offense, we’re probably about done unless Veach decides to go all in with a trade for Julio.
