He helped the Philadelphia Eagles reach the Super Bowl last season, but DeVonta Smith felt slighted about one thing.
He nearly had 1,200 receiving yards (1,196) and finished with 95 catches, including seven for touchdowns. Smith had six 100+ yard performances, including a 100-yard outing in the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs. He accomplished a lot in his second year, but the former five-star did not make the Pro Bowl. In a feature on The Big Slay podcast, Smith rehashed those feelings with his Eagles’ teammate Darius Slay. Slay, a 2017 All-Pro cornerback, felt Smith should have gotten an invite.
“I was hot about that, cause I wanted my dog to get his first Pro Bowl cause he deserved that thing”

Smith had to share targets with A.J. Brown, but he stepped up and consistently made plays.
He has his eyes on a big season in the fall. Hopefully, Smith makes the Pro Bowl in year three.
