What's the consensus on this guy? I come away from Alabama games HUGELY impressed with this kid, especially in the passing game.

Is it all smoke and mirrors, or is he a first day pick?

A first day pick? He'd probably be lucky to go in the fifth round. He's a reliable target but there are a number of similar tight ends, and generally those guys go late. He's not nearly big/athletic enough to warrant being selected that high. Smelley's a senior and not even listed in Scott's positional rankings.

A 6'2" sub 230 lb TE who isn't athletic wont make it in the NFL. Maybe could develop into a decent H Back, but nothing more than that. late round/UDFA type guy.
