Georgia captain Chris Smith: Senior Bowl ‘a blessing,’ eager to compete and solidify draft stock

MOBILE, Ala. — The “G” on the helmet wasn’t enough for Georgia defensive star Chris Smith, who also opted to wear the Bulldogs’ football pants.

That’s just fine for Georgia fans, as they have watched Smith grow into an NFL prospect over the past three seasons by representing everything the football program is supposed to be all about.

Smith has shown big-play ability with game-changing plays against Clemson (2021) and LSU (2022) most notably, but he’s also shown the sort of consistency he flashed at the first Senior Bowl practice on Tuesday.

“There are so many great football players out here, and so many great football minds, it’s a blessing to be out here,” said Smith, whose passion for the game and competitive spirit was surely evident to the NFL general managers and coaches present.
