Alabama has produced some of the best wide receivers in the NFL and DeVonta Smith has certainly added himself to that list of alumni at the next level.

The receiver position in general has never been deeper which makes it difficult to be heralded as one of the 10 best in the game. But Smith’s Eagles teammate and defensive back Darius Slay believes the Heisman Trophy winner is already a part of that elite group.

Of course, Slay has an affinity towards his teammate but he is typically assigned to defend the league’s best wide receivers while also going up against Smith every day in practice making his opinion carry that much more weight.
