The file on Torrey Smith
University of Maryland (2008-2010)
Then a high school dual-threat quarterback, Torrey Smith committed to the University of Maryland as a three-star recruit out of Virginia, according to Yahoo! Rivals. He played three seasons for the Terrapins, improving over each year. His 1,309 kick return yards was the most in the NCAA in 2009. In his final season in 2010, Smith recorded 67 grabs for 1,055 yards and scored 12 touchdowns. He finished with 152 receptions, 2,215 yards and 19 touchdowns over his career.
Making the jump to the NFL
Smith declared for the NFL draft in 2011. He attended the NFL combine in Indianapolis where he posted a blazing 4.43 40-yard dash. His 41" vertical jump was the second-highest among wide receivers that year. He also put up 19 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Smith would be drafted by the Baltimore Ravens on Day 2 with the 58th overall pick. He was the fifth receiver taken that year, coming after notables such as A.J. Green and Julio Jones.
Baltimore Ravens (2011-2014)
Smith, (6-foot-1, 205 pounds), quickly exploded onto the scene as a big-play threat, averaging 16.8 yards per catch as a rookie. He appeared in 16 games in each of his four seasons with the Ravens, making 62 of a possible 64 starts. He finished with 213 catches on 434 targets, 3,591 receiving yards and 30 receiving touchdowns. His long grabs by year checked in at 74, 54, 74 and 53 yards.
Super Bowl Champion
In his second year, Smith started for the Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII against the 49ers. Baltimore scored 34 points in a win over San Francisco, and Smith finished with two receptions on six targets for 35 yards. In his postseason career, consisting of eight games, Smith has notched 20 catches for 414 yards and four touchdowns.
Coming out party
Smith's two biggest regular-season campaigns came over the last two years. In 2013, the Ravens wideout established himself as a No. 1 option, recording 65 receptions for 1,128 yards, both of which were career highs. It was Smith's first 1,000-yard season as a pro. In 2014, his catches and yards tapered off, but Smith caught 11 touchdowns, which was a personal best.
'The next chapter'
On Tuesday, March 10, 2015, the 49ers officially signed free-agent wide receiver Torrey Smith to a five-year, $40 million contract. Smith wrote on Twitter less than an hour into the NFL’s free-agent signing period, “Bay Area!!!!!!” The day prior, Smith wrote a farewell to Baltimore fans, saying he would join a new team in 2015: "I’m on to the next chapter of my life."
