DEVonta Smith, Alabama's first receiver in more than three decades to win the Heisman Trophy, has started this mountain with him. After a hand award, he became even more dynamic and productive.
Is it possible to pick the four best receivers in the history of the College Football Playoff? For and, who are on Mount Rushmore's third playoff season after previously picking the four best running backs and four best linebackers, this was the easiest decision.
Smith is on the lookout for receiver Rushmore, and the discussion begins with the other three spots. Look at what Smith did in his playoff career.
1 catch and 4 yards to reach the Clemson semifinal
1 catch, 41 yards, and 1 touchdown in Georgia's championship.
Six catches, 104 yards, and one touchdown in the Oklahoma semifinal
Six catches and 65 yards in the Clemson championship.
7 catches, 130 yards, and three touchdowns in Notre Dame's semifinal
12 catches, 215 yards, and three touchdowns in Ohio State championship.
So let's get to the conclusion of the playoff resume: 6 games, 33 catches, 559 yards, and 8 touchdowns.
Tua Tagovailoa scored a touchdown for the 2017 season, putting the quarterback's first game in 18 games. And the final game as a senior set the playoff record for the title game with 12 passes, putting the mark 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. He averaged 9.5 receptions and 173 receiving yards in his two playoff games.
Against the best, he was even better. So that's one face. He's on the verge.
What was the outcome of the discussion for the other three spots? Well, there were a lot of Clemson and a lot of LSU.
