Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline lists Alabama junior TE Irv Smith as one of his "risers" after his performance against Mississippi State on Saturday.
Alabama is loaded with talented players, and Smith sometimes gets lost in the shuffle despite being one of the most productive tight ends in college football. He picked up five catches for 70 yards in the victory, and he's gone over the century mark and scored in several games for the Crimson Tide this season. "While he must improve his blocking strength, Smith’s intensity and effort are next-level worthy," Pauline writes. "The senior class of tight ends leaves a lot to be desired, but Smith is one of a handful of underclassmen who presently rank as top-75 pick." Nov 14 - 7:53 PM

Alabama junior TE Irv Smith snagged five passes for 70 yards in a 24-0 win over Mississippi State.

Smith was the leading receiver in this one, but he breaks his touchdown streak of four games. The Tide won't complain too much, and neither should Smith; one of the most improved draft prospects in college football. Don't be surprised if the 6-foot-4, 241-pound tight end finds the end zone again against The Citadel next Saturday.

Alabama junior TE Irv Smith is making "first-round noise," according to ESPN's Todd McShay.

McShay says Smith is one of the most underrated prospects in this next draft class, pointing to his "very good speed and athleticism" and projecting him to be "a tough matchup in the NFL, especially when in multiple-TE sets." Smith (6'4/241) only has adequate size, but he's showed to be an extremely dangerous receiving weapon in Alabama's devastating offense.

Alabama junior TE Irv Smith caught two passes for 123 yards with a touchdown in a 65-31 win over Arkansas on Saturday.

What a start to the game it was for Smith (6'4/241). On the very first play of the game, he strolled for a 76-yard touchdown pass from Tua Tagovailoa. A few moments later, he brought in a 47-yard pass that set up another Alabama touchdown. That was it for the junior tight end, but damage done. Smith is moving up draft boards, and he could continue to do so with another solid game next Saturday against Missouri.

The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard believes Alabama junior TE Irv Smith is a player to watch.

Smith has 9/122/2 through three games and will likely outperform his entire 2017 season within the next few weeks. Head coach Nick Saban has done a good job getting Smith more involved this season. Ledyard believes Smith "is an excellent athlete with great size, speed and quickness for the position." He is an interesting draft prospect with the potential for a skyrocketing draft stock depending on how he performs the rest of the season.

Alabama HC Nick Saban said of the tight end position, "I think systematically, we’ll probably use it a little better."

O.J. Howard wishes this would have happened three years ago, but better late than never? While Howard has moved on to the NFL, the Tide have brought in Patriots TE coach Brian Daboll to serve as offensive coordinator and he'll have several options at the position. The names to know, here, are junior Hale Hentges, sophomore Miller Forristall and sophomore Irv Smith Jr. Hentges is more of an in-line blocking tight end, while Forristall and Smith are likely to see the most pure offensive work as receivers.
