3. DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama
Corey Davis and A.J. Brown have taken turns having big games for most of the season, but it is certainly within the realm of possibility that this improvement from Davis ends up earning a big contract in the off-season.
Unfortunately, with an A.J. Brown extension looking likely for 2022 or 2023, it is going to be hard to have two huge wide receiver contracts on the books given the other needs on this team.
DeVonta Smith was one of four great receivers for Alabama last year, alongside Jerry Jeudy, Henry Ruggs III, and Jaylen Waddle. Jeudy and Ruggs are in the NFL now, and Waddle suffered a season-ending ankle injury a few weeks ago, so now Smith will likely get most of the attention as far as Alabama receivers go.
Though the other three have been the more sought after prospects, Smith actually led the team in receiving yards and touchdowns in 2019, racking up 1256 yards and 14 touchdowns on 68 receptions. He is a very precise route-runner with reliable hands, and similar to A.J. Brown can do big damage after the catch.
The Titans will certainly miss Corey Davis if they are unable to re-sign him, but Smith might end up being a great replacement for him if the need arises.
