Bama alums Collin Sexton, DeVonta Smith greet in Cleveland ahead of NFL Draft
Once a member of the Alabama Crimson Tide, always a member of the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Just one night before the 2021 NFL Draft in Cleveland, Bama Heisman-winner DeVonta Smith stopped by Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse to watch the Cavaliers take on the Orlando Magic. Unfortunately, due to a concussion, his fellow Bama alum Collin Sexton was unable to play in the game.
However, the two talented Tide products were able to share a moment on Wednesday. Sexton gifted Smith, one of the top wide receivers in his class and a reigning national champion, with his No. 2 jersey, and the Bama pair posed for a photo afterward.
Smith is projected to be one of the first wideouts to be taken in this year's draft, which is taking place right on the shores of Lake Erie.
As for Sexton, the Cavs guard continues to show signs of growth and a capability to be an outstanding player, averaging 24.5 points and 4.1 assists per game on 57.2% True Shooting.
