DeVonta Smith shouldn't have much to worry about regarding his fit with the Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback after the club drafted the wideout No. 10 overall Thursday.
The two worked pretty well together in college at Alabama. Now Smith can't wait to re-establish the connection.
"I know for sure that we're going to work every day," Smith said on NFL Network. "Every day we're going to come in and give our best. And we're ready."
In 2017, a freshman Smith hauled in eight catches for 160 yards and three touchdowns with Hurts as his QB.
Those numbers only continued to get better as Smith's college career progressed, though Hurts wouldn't be there to see it. After Hurts split time with Tua Tagovailoa in 2018, he transferred to Oklahoma in 2019.
Smith would go onto win the Heisman Trophy in 2020, tallying 1,856 yards and 23 touchdowns on 117 catches as Alabama once again won the national championship.
Now he gets a chance to see what could've happened had he and Hurts broke out together in college.
The Eagles believed so strongly in the tandem that they decided to trade up to grab Smith, swapping first-round picks with the NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys. Philadelphia also sent a third-round pick to Dallas to make sure it would land the Heisman winner.
Hurts seemed thrilled to have Smith back in the huddle with him, tweeting that he couldn't wait to "run it back" with his college wideout.
