Tennessee's Trey Smith vows to 'never forget' plummeting in 2021 NFL Draft......Trey Smith's draft stock plummeted in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The former Tennessee football offensive lineman did not hear his name called until late in the sixth round Saturday, when the Kansas City Chiefs selected him with the 226th overall pick. He was once considered a surefire first-round prospect.
It's safe to say he's using it as motivation.
"Will never forget," Smith tweeted after the third round ended Friday night.
Smith, a former five-star prospect from Jackson, Tennessee, has appeared in 42 games— 41 as a starter— since signing with the Vols in 2017. He has displayed great versatility, performing well at both tackle and guard spots.
He did battle blood clots in his lungs twice during his career, which could be a reason for him falling in the draft. He hasn't missed a game in two years.
IMO we should have taken a chance....what's a 6th round anyways?
196. Giants, Gary Brightwell, RB, Arizona Grade: B+
Thick, explosive back who's better accelerating away from defenders than making them miss in space, but his feet aren't slow or clunky. North-South speciality who'll power through contact on a regular basis. Nice RB depth this late.
It's interesting to me that they took this guy over the Buffalo kid who got lots of hype RB jarett patterson.... I am a UB alum...I was not high on jarett patterson like others seemed to be.... I'd bet the NYG got it right.
So long as this kid can block....which who knows? other than that, what is there not to like?
I was high on Patterson not long ago. But closer look revealed he did well behind a line that gave him huge lanes to run through. This kid, scouting report is not much blocking skill and not much pass catching skill either, is a head scratcher for me. I hope he can pass block, pick up a blitz or be taught to. First blush, Gallman 2.0 i guess we will find out. San Fran will be cutting RBs this summer. They drafted a couple after signing Gallman. That does not compute.
He has the ability to bully his way into the end zone on goal line plays.. but if he can’t block or catch, then when he is in, it wud b a tell that it is a running play.

alohar2: I began my Giants fan passion in 1961; Huff was a great, intense LB who had classic games vs Jim Taylor of the Packers (ie 1962 champ. game) and Jim Brown. Sam along w/Frank Gifford helped begin the "glitz" of the NFL w/TV commercials and NYC media attenti

Carson53: Good for Andrew and good for us. Given everything it would really suck to miss on a #4 overall pick at LT. Guys like that are supposed to be solid picks and he is.

alohar2: Does anyone know the exact nature of Rudolph's foot injury? I don't recall DG/JJ describing the injury. We recall Strahan had a lis franc- tough recovery. Rudolph offers the Giants the most complete TE since Shockey. Iowa State has several terrific TEs.

AmaniToomerToeDrag: Wouldn't it be so 2020 for the Giants to not only make the playoffs, but to pull off the greatest playoff push in NFL history? Beat the Bills in the Super Bowl. One could dream. Speaking of Dream, what a stud that Daniel Jones is at QB. 😉Later Haters😉
