Overview:

Torrey Smith is a physically gifted receiver with a great combination of size and speed. He is an effective route runner and is a play maker with the ball in his hands. However, he may have some trouble catching the ball in the NFL. He routinely traps the ball against his chest and he could have some drop problems in the NFL. I also want to see him attack the ball more and be more aggressive. For that reason I would not draft him in the 1st round.

Scouting Report:
