One of the league's top right tackles, Smith cashes in after proving himself as a key member of Indianapolis' offensive line. Formerly a guard at Auburn, the 25-year-old has excelled through 43 games at right tackle in the NFL. According to an announcement from the Colts, Smith "was one of three tackles to play at least 900 snaps and not allow a sack in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus. He was also one of only five tackles to be charged with allowing one or fewer quarterback hits last season."
