Torrey Smith

James Torrey Smith (born January 26, 1989) is an American football wide receiver for the Baltimore Ravens in the National Football League (NFL). He was selected by the Ravens in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Smith attended Stafford Senior High School in Stafford County, Virginia, where he played basketball and football. He accepted a scholarship to the University of Maryland, and redshirted his first year. In 2008, he set the Atlantic Coast Conference single-season kickoff return record with 1,089 yards after a 99-yard touchdown in the 2008 Humanitarian Bowl. He ended the year with 24 catches for 336 yards and two touchdowns. In 2009, he surpassed his own mark and re-set the ACC single-season kickoff return record at 1,309 yards. That season, he amassed 2,129 all-purpose yards, the second-highest all-time mark for an ACC player. He earned many All-ACC honors following the season. A panel of scouts considered Smith a potential third- or fourth-round selection for the 2010 NFL Draft, but he decided to return to Maryland for his junior season. In 2010, Smith was named to the Paul Hornung Award and Biletnikoff Award watchlists before the season. That season, he set the ACC career kickoff return record. Smith chose to forgo his senior season to enter the 2011 NFL Draft, where the Baltimore Ravens selected him in the second round with the 58th overall pick.
