NEW COLLEGE FOOTBALL, USA -- This mountain starts with Alabama's DeVonta Smith, the first receiver in over three decades to win the Heisman Trophy, who then became even more dynamic and productive after receiving the award.

Is it possible to pick the four finest receivers in the history of the College Football Playoff? For and, who have previously picked the four best running backs and four best linebackers after completing their third playoff, this was the easiest choice.

Smith is back with the receiver Rushmore, and then the discussion for the other three spots begins. Look at what Smith did in his playoff career.

1 catch and 4 yards for Clemson's semifinal.

1 catch, 41 yards, and one touchdown in the Georgia championship.

6 catches, 104 yards, and one touchdown in Oklahoma's semifinal

Six catches and 65 yards at the Clemson championship

7 catches, 130 yards, and three touchdowns in Notre Dame's semifinal

12 catches, 215 yards, and three touchdowns in the Ohio State championship.

So let's get the total of the playoff series resume: 6 games, 33 catches, 559 yards, and 8 touchdowns.

And the first touchdown as a freshman in 2017 was the game-winner in overtime from Tua Tagovailoa to defeat the Bulldogs. And the final game as a senior set the playoff record for title game catches with 12 and set the benchmark for the most receiving yards in a two-game playoff with 345.

Smith averaged 9.5 receptions and 137 receiving yards per game in his 11 games before being awarded the 2020 Heisman. In his two playoff games, he averaged 9.5 receptions and 173 receiving yards.

Against the best, he was even better. So that's one face. He's on.

What exactly was the discussion for the other three spots? Well, there was a lot of Clemson and a lot of LSU.
