CB Cam Smith Declares For NFL Draft
Nov. 02, 2022

South Carolina CB Cam Smith has declared for the 2023 NFL Draft, he announced via Twitter on Friday. Smith said in November that Carolina's Nov. 19 game against Tennessee would “more than likely” serve as his last in Williams-Brice Stadium, and he made the plans for his future official with a social media post.

“First I would like to thank God for the opportunity to play football and receive an education from the University of South Carolina,” Smith said. “I’ve always dreamed of playing in the SEC, and the University of South Carolina has allowed me to have the best experience both in the classroom and on the football field “I am eager to pursue my dreams of playing in the NFL, but I will always be a Gamecock.”

Smith is widely considered one of the best defensive backs in college football and is projected as a first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. He spent time at the corner and nickel positions during his Carolina tenure.
