Running Back for the Detroit Lions
Kevin Smith Biography
Shifty running back from Detroit Lions, Kevin Smith was born on December 17, 1986 (1986-12-17) in Miami, Florida. The 1st pick in the 3rd round of the 2008 NFL Draft, Smith was the nation's leading rusher and scorer during the 2007 NCAA season, and was a consensus All-American.
During the 2007 season, Kevin Smith ran for 2,567 yards, the second highest single-season rushing total after Barry Sanders' 2,628 yards in the 1988 season. He also set the single-season record for rushing attempts with 450. Smith also scored 30 touchdowns to lead the nation in scoring for the season. Smith is currently the state of Florida's all-time leading running back with 4,679 career rushing yards
Early in the season, Smith was touted as a dark-horse candidate for the Heisman trophy, and ended up finishing in eighth place with 55 total points and three first-place votes to become only the second player from UCF, along with Daunte Culpepper to receive Heisman votes.
Smith was also the first consensus All-American from UCF being selected to almost every 2007 All-American First Team, including Sports Illustrated. Still considered highly underrated, overlooked by players from bigger school across the nation.
On December 18, 2007 Smith announced that he would stay for his senior season at UCF. At that time, he had amassed 4,679 career rushing yards, and would only have needed 1,718 yards in his senior year to break Ron Dayne's career mark of 6,397 yards. However, on January 6, 2008 Smith reversed his previous decision and announced his intention to bypass his senior season and enter the NFL draft, where he was selected by the Detroit Lions, where he plans to remind fans of one of the best running backs of all-time, Hall of Famer, Barry Sanders.
