During his time at Utah, Smith totaled 78 receptions for 1,608 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also served as an electrifying return man — 1,365 return yards and 4 touchdowns. Smith went on to have an outstanding NFL career that featured two All-Pro selections and five Pro Bowl nominations.
At the time of his retirement in January 2017, Smith ranked seventh all-time in NFL career all-purpose yards (19,180), seventh in career receiving yards (14,731), and twelfth in career receptions (1,031).
