Player Outlook

The best case for Ito Smith is if you're drafting him as the handcuff to Todd Gurley, but even in the event of a Gurley injury it seems likely Smith will still share with Brian Hill and Qadree Ollison. Injuries may have put Smith at the back of the line in 2019, but Smith entered last year as the team's top backup and will have a shot to regain that title. If he does, he's worth a pick in the double-digit rounds, but he doesn't have as much upside as some backups.

Player News
  • Smith (concussion/neck) has been taking part in offseason training in Houston and plans to return to Atlanta in the near future to work out with quarterback Matt Ryan and other skill-position players, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Smith's ability to take part in workouts without any reported limitations suggested he's gained full clearance from the concussion that sidelined him for the Falcons' final nine games of the past season. While Atlanta moved on from Devonta Freeman earlier in the offseason, the team brought in ex-Rams standout Todd Gurley to serve as its lead back. As a result, Smith will remain stuck in his familiar No. 2 role in 2020 if Gurley's chronic knee issues don't cost him too much time.

  • Smith (neck/concussion) should be back with the Falcons for 2020, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The 2018 fourth-round pick was limited to seven games, 33 touches and 193 yards in his second pro season, landing on injured reserve in early November after he suffered his second concussion of the year. Smith also picked up a neck injury, but he'll likely be healthy by April when the Falcons begin their offseason program. With Devonta Freeman facing an uncertain future due to his hefty salary, it isn't out of the question that Smith could get a shot to compete for the starting backfield job. Of course, the Falcons presumably will bring in other running backs if they end up cutting or trading Freeman.

  • Smith (neck) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. The report indicates Smith was never able to shed the concussion which he sustained in Week 7, although it's quite possible the second-year running back could simply be dealing with concussion symptoms and a lingering neck injury. With Smith's 2019 season now over, Brian Hill is expected to continue operating as the No. 2 running back behind Devonta Freeman.

  • Smith (neck) will not play in Sunday's game against the Saints, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports. A Week 9 bye allowed Smith to clear the concussion protocol, but he didn't have enough time to recover from his neck injury. He was held out of practice throughout the week, leaving his availability beyond Sunday looking murky. Brian Hill served as the Falcons' No. 2 running back behind Devonta Freeman in a 27-20 loss to the Seahawks back in Week 8.

  • Smith has cleared the concussion protocol, but a neck injury kept him out of Thursday's practice, the Falcons' official website reports. A bye week allowed Smith to recover from his concussion, but a second straight missed practice suggests his neck is still a significant concern. Another absence Friday likely would leave Brian Hill as the No. 2 running back for Sunday's game in New Orleans against a red-hot Saints defense. Devonta Freeman played 79 percent of snaps in the final game before a Week 9 bye, taking 13 carries for 39 yards and eight catches for 63 yards in a 27-20 loss to Seattle.
