Smith is one of the top five offensive linemen listed. Here's what FoxSports.com had to say about the rugged sophomore guard:
''Vols' most improved offensive player of the spring has returned with a flurry after sitting out 2003 as redshirt. He's already locked up one of the team's openings at guard.''
Ole Miss' Michael Spurlock, successor to Eli Manning, is listed as the No. 1 breakout candidate among college quarterbacks. Georgia's Kregg Lumpkin is listed No. 1 among running backs and Alabama's Ramzee Robinson is listed No. 1 among defensive backs.
FoxSports.com also listed some honorable mentions at each position, calling them ''Kings of Spring.'' These include the following SEC players:
Wide receivers Dwayne Bowe (LSU) and Bryan McClendon (Georgia), offensive lineman Rudy Niswanger (LSU), defensive linemen Todd Bates (Alabama) and Stanley McGlover (Auburn), linebackers Antarrious Williams (Auburn) and Dennis Johnson (Kentucky).
