2014 Projections: It appears that out of the gate that Gabe McClary appears to winning the battle for the go to slot receiver on the team. However depth is always good and Smith is the perfect fit for a slot receiver or returner. If he doesn't get on the field though, I would expect him to be redshirted.

Uniform History: The number ocho cinco goes all the way back to Donald Tosi an end from Mansfield. All East Selection Byron Hemingway wore it in 1977.

Antonio Garay, a star defensive end who had a tremendous career with the San Diego Chargers wore it. Ryan Thompson a tight end from 2005-07 wore it, and most recently Groza snub Nate Freese wore it.
