DEVonta Smith, Alabama's first receiver in over three decades to win the Heisman Trophy, is on the rise. After he had the award, she became even more dynamic and productive.
Is it possible to select the four best receivers in the history of the College Football Playoff? For and, who are on Mount Rushmore's third playoff after previously selecting the four best running backs and four best linebackers, this was the best choice.
Smith is on the receiver Rushmore, and then the discussion for the other three spots will begin. Look at what Smith did in his playoff career.
1 catch and 4 yards in the Clemson semifinal
1 catch, 41 yards, and 1 touchdown are all on the way to the Georgia championship.
6 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 that conclusion: six games, 33 catches, 559 yards, and eight touchdowns.
In a two-game playoff with 345, the first touchdown as a freshman in 2017 was the game-winner. Tua Tagovailoa saved the game in overtime. The final game as a senior set the playoff record for the title game. With 12 and most receiving yards, the team built a new record.
Smith averaged 9.5 receptions and 137 receiving yards per game in his 11 playoff games, including 9.5 receptions and 173 receiving yards.
He was even better against the best. So that's one face. He's on.
What was the outcome of the discussion for the other three spots? Well, there was a lot of Clemson and a lot of LSU.
