Trey Smith was a five star recruit coming out of high school and he was an impact player for the Tennessee Vols from day one, but after suffering from blood clots, Smith’s career looked like it was going to take a back seat to his medical condition. Well Smith, was not going to let the Devil get the best of him, and he returned last season to 5 star plus form.
As a true freshman, Trey Smith started every single game and was the first Volunteer true lineman to start every game as a true freshman in 30 plus years. He was named to All-SEC Second Team in his first season playing college football.
As a Sophomore, Smith continued his mean streak. After starting his 19th consecutive game, Smith had to be shut down for the rest of the season because of a health scare. Doctor’s found blood clots in his body and thought it would be best for him to stop playing ball.
Smith would not let the enemies attacks work though, because last year he came back with a chip on his shoulder. He appeared in all 13 games and started 12 at left guard. He is easily one of the nations top offensive guards, and I would be shocked in an NFL team does not fall in love with this kid. Trey Smith has been dominating the SEC for years, and that is not easy to do.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:
Trey Smith is one of the best offensive lineman in the entire country. His medical issues will probably scare some teams, but when you watch film, you can see the kid loves to bury his opposition. Smith even lined up last season at left tackle. He is a 6060, 335 pound offensive lineman. He reminds me a lot of Cordy Glenn. Glenn was converted to left tackle at the next level. I think Smith is more a guard, because it is his natural position, but he is a stud and will hear his name called in the 2021 NFL Draft. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
