Let’s Look At Rod Smith
The Denver Broncos’ Rod Smith has somewhat quietly put together a great career as a wide receiver. Let’s take a look at some of his accomplishments.
Through the 2006 season, Rod Smith has gained over 1,000 yards on eight different occasions. He has won two Super Bowl rings (1997 and 1998) and led the league in receptions in 2001. In Super Bowl XXXIII, Rod Smith had five receptions for 152 yards. Smith also holds Broncos records for career receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns. Rod Smith also holds the Broncos franchise record for most yards gained from scrimmage. Smith is also ranked in the top 20 all time in the NFL for career receptions and career receiving yards.
Now, the most amazing fact about Denver Broncos wide receiver Rod Smith: He graduated from Missouri Southern State University in 1994… and no NFL team drafted him. Every team, including the Broncos, passed on Rod Smith numerous times and he still went on to accomplish all those feats.
He currently holds the record for the most receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns by a player who did not get drafted during the NFL Draft.
