KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -The Kansas City Chiefs have chosen Tennessee offensive lineman Trey Smith in the 6th round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

From being the highest-rated recruit in his class to sign with UT to not being able to play the game he loves, the Jackson native has persevered through it all.

Smith has earned an inaugural Fritz Pollard Trophy, the 2019 Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award and named 2020 Preseason AP All American.

Smith, the 226th draft pick, joins his former teammate Josh Palmer at the next level.
