Alabama NFL Draft Prospects

Geno Matias-Smith, Alabama’s 2016 Pro Day

Alabama DB prospect Geno Matias-Smith (No. 24): Cedric Mason- Touchdown Alabama Magazine

The native Georgian (Atlanta) overcame two counts of driving under the influence, to become one of Alabama’s leaders in its secondary last season.

Defensive back Geno Matias-Smith enrolled at Alabama as a four-star cornerback in 2012, but would later be moved to safety. He served as a backup in the Crimson Tide’s nickel package at “Star,” and played free safety in the team’s dime formation. Matias-Smith had his most productive year in 2015, totaling 72 tackles, a tackle for loss, a pass breakup, a forced fumble and an interception. He leaves with 145 career tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and eight pass breakups.
