He received treatment in order to finish out his career with the Volunteers. Despite the health issues, Smith attests to his “perfect” health. In 2018 during his sophomore season, Smith dealt with blood clots in his lungs after starting the first seven games. “I’m completely healthy and ready to roll,” Smith said.
“When you don’t get selected it’s tough,” Smith said. “I’m thankful for everyone in the Chiefs organization for believing in me an taking a chance on me,” Smith said. Smith said waiting until the final round to hear his name called is a big motivator.
A First Team All-SEC player, Smith’s talent wasn’t the reason for him falling to the sixth round, instead his health was a concern. Now the former Tennessee guard joins the Chiefs offense as an offensive guard. Picked in the sixth round at No. 226 overall, he was the final draftee for the Chiefs out of a total of six.
Source “I’m excited to work really with Patrick Mahomes,” Smith said. “My expectation is to come to work everyday and do exactly what they need me to do.”
Now with Smith as well as the addition of Creed Humphrey, Smith will vie for a spot on the line alongside veterans Joe Thuney, Andrew Wylie, Kyle Long, and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. After their loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl 55, the Chiefs needed to address their line.
