While the wide receiver position isn’t the Dallas Cowboys’ most pressing need at the moment, on Thursday, they hosted Ohio State receiver Devin Smith for a pre-draft visit. Per the Dallas Morning News, of the 22 national prospects who have visited Valley Ranch thus far--they’re allotted 30 such visits by the NFL--Smith is the only receiver.
As you might remember from his career as a Buckeye, Smith is a legitimate deep threat with a knack for getting behind defenses, and he contributed on special teams as well. His breakout season at Ohio State came in 2013, when he caught 44 passes for 660 yards and eight touchdowns.
Then in 2014, as a senior, Smith posted 33 catches, 931 yards--and average of 28.2 yards per catch for the season--and 12 touchdowns.
After putting up a 4.42 in the 40-yard dash and registering a 39-inch vertical at the Combine, Smith is projected to come off the board on the second day of the draft, likely in the second round.
