The Facts: The Falcons have released Smith.
Diehards Line:Smith was originally selected by the Falcons in the fourth round (126th overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft out of Southern Mississippi. In three seasons in Atlanta, Smith recorded 175 carries for 689 yards and 55 receptions for 314 yards, and six total touchdowns. The Mobile, Ala., native rushed for 268 yards on 63 carries (4.3 avg.) and one touchdown and registered 17 receptions for 75 yards (4.4 avg.) in 14 games last season. The team added Mike Davis, who played for Carolina last season, as their lead back last month. We'll see if the NFL Draft changes that.
