Better Know An Eagle 2017: #6 Wide Receiver Jeff Smith

New, 2 comments
NCAA Football: Boston College at Wake Forest Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Jeff Smith

Number: 6

Position: Wide Receiver

Height: 6’1”

Weight: 192

Hometown: St. Petersburg, Florida

High School: Clearwater Central Catholic

2016 Stats: Played in all 13 games for the Eagles, with 27 receptions, 395 yards, and 3 touchdowns along with 35 rushes for 199 yards and 1 touchdown.

2017 Projection: Smith should start as a wide receiver, specializing as a deep threat for either Darius Wade or Anthony Brown.

Over/Under: With the new up-tempo offense that the Eagles are expected to unveil in the fall, expect Smith, one of their faster players, to get more involved, possibly doubling his receptions from last year.

How’d He Get Here: Jeff originally committed to the Eagles as a dual threat, 3* quarterback, as you can see here.

Quotes From Addazio: “I think Jeff Smith and Mike Walker are getting ready to have electric years...you’re going to see us utilize a lot this year, with the likes of Mike Walker and Jeff Smith. I mean, they have elite speed now...can flat out fly and really carry the ball”
