Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver DeVonta Smith is fresh off winning the Heisman Trophy and a national championship at Alabama, and is talking a big game ahead of his first NFL season.
Reuniting with his former Crimson Tide quarterback in Jalen Hurts, Smith believes they will prove to be the NFL’s best young QB-receiver combo, per ESPN.com’s Tim McManus:
Smith has every reason to be confident after putting up the senior campaign he did in Tuscaloosa:
DeVonta Smith stats in 2020: 117 receptions, 1,856 receiving yards, 23 touchdowns
However, there is reason to be a little concerned about whether or not Smith and Hurts can recapture some of the magic they apparently had at Alabama.
