The 49ers selected Smith in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 176th overall.
Smith is a former five-star recruit out who possesses favorable size at 6-foot-5 and 255 pounds. While he seemingly has upside as both a blocker and receiver, Smith didn't record any explosive metrics at the combine and wasn't particularly productive in the red zone at Stanford. With the 49ers, Smith seems to have decent odds of making the 53-man roster with little competition for the No. 3 tight end role behind George Kittle and Garrett Celek.
