UCF has three players in Saturday’s Senior Bowl at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, AL. One player to watch is Knights receiver Tre’Quan Smith, who has been impressive during practices this week.
Smith will be up against stiff wide receiver competition with players like DaeSean Hamilton of Penn State, Braxton Berrios of Miami and James Washington of Oklahoma State in the mix.
“I’m happy to be here. It gives me the opportunity to get myself out there more for the people who don’t really know me,” Smith told the media this week during practices. “Right now, I’m taking full advantage of the opportunity and I’m glad I received the invitation to be here. It means a lot.”
Smith has established himself as a dynamic deep-threat that can also make plays in the red zone.
After an excellent red-shirt junior season that saw him post 54 catches for 1082 yards and 13 TDs, Smith decided to forgo his senior campaign at Central Florida and will instead join the 2018 NFL Draft field. Smith averaged a whopping 19.8 yards per catch during his junior season.
We previously wrote that we agreed with his decision and that he’s never going to be “hotter” as a prospect based on his numbers and his team’s season (13-0) than right now.
Smith currently is projected as a second or third round prospect, but he could improve that starting Saturday afternoon, too.
As Smith competes in this weekend’s Senior Bowl, his 2017 Knights team will be recognized at the Pro Bowl Sunday night back in Orlando, as the only undefeated team in major college football.
