After shocking almost everyone on Day 1, the New Orleans Saints made their second selection of the NFL Draft in the 3rd Round by taking wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith out of UCF at 91st overall.
Smith possesses average NFL size, but unusually long arms. While there is clearly room for more consistency with finishing catches outside his frame, he does have the ball skills and ability to go up and over opponents to win the downfield throws. Smith’s easy acceleration in space creates workable advantages early in routes, but he’ll need to keep improving on his press release technique. Smith should challenge for a spot at WR4/WR5, but his his ceiling is a little limited.
Grade the Saints 91st overall pick choice.
