Last year's Heisman winner and new Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Devonta Smith landed on the list at No. 3 only behind Larry Fitzgerald and Randy Moss, two of college football's and NFL's greatest receivers. Connelly wrote that Smith had a "perfect career" at Bama winning a national title as a freshman, making one of the greatest plays in college football history and winning another as as senior along with winning the Heisman Trophy to cap off the arguably the greatest season by a Alabama player. Smith had 235 career catches, 3,965 receiving yards and 46 touchdowns.
During his time at Alabama, Nick Saban has shown that if an Alabama commit follows the "Process," then they can eventually make it to the NFL. In fact, since he took over in 2007, the Crimson Tide has had 33 players drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft.
Smith's name is all over the record book and his contributions to 2nd&26 will live forever. He will get more opportunities in the offense for the remainder of the season with Jaylen Waddle's unfortunate injury. He still has four more regular season games and the post season to make more big plays in big games and add to already impressive stat sheet and make the claim that he is the best receiver in Crimson Tide history.
