Pick Analysis: Romarius Ito Smith was Mobile's Offensive Player of the Year as a high school senior, rushing for 1,803 yards and 24 touchdowns, to go along with 27 catches, 383 yards and five touchdowns receiving. Southern Miss coaches didn't take long to plug him into the lineup as he started six of 12 games as a true freshman (136 carries, 536 yards, two touchdowns rushing; eight catches, 76 receiving yards; 10 kick returns, 223 yards), though his four fumbles limited his effectiveness at times. Smith led the team in rushing for the first of three straight seasons in 2015, covering 1,128 yards and scoring 10 times on 171 carries while becoming a major part of the passing game (49 catches, 515 yards, three touchdowns) and returning kicks (11 returns for 233 yards). He started all 13 games as a junior, toting the ball 265 times for 1,459 yards and 17 touchdowns while catching 43 passes for 459 yards and two scores. Conference USA coaches voted him first-team all-conference in 2017 after he started all 13 games, carrying the ball 248 times for 1,415 yards, and 13 touchdowns. He snared 40 receptions for 396 yards and two scores, as well.
