 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Following Tuesday's spring-practice workout, Smith reported he was at 202 pounds when he weighed himself Monday, up from his playing weight last season of about 182. Gibbs said he was 203 pounds, up from about 192 during the season. "I'm stronger," Gibbs said. "I'm pretty sure I got faster." Presumably, the race to add muscle mass will stop at some point before offensive tackle Jordan Williams is invited into the Gibbs/Smith weigh-in challenge, but it's nonetheless an illustration of the sort of competition that fuels the running backs overseen by position coach Tashard Choice. Gibbs calls it a "friendly competitive vibe," but it's competition all the same. "That's honestly what it is," Smith said. "I mean, we love each other and everything, but at the end of the day, we're all fighting for reps."

Tech has no position more stocked than running back. As a freshman, Gibbs ranked fourth in the ACC in all-purpose yards per game (138.3). Mason, an All-ACC pick in 2019, has run for 90-plus yards nine times in his career. Of players with double-digit carries, Smith led the team with a 6.9 yards-per-carry average, boosted by six runs of 20 yards or more out of 43 carries. It shouldn't be forgotten that Griffin was the No. 2 running-back prospect in Georgia in the 2019 class (247Sports Composite) and has run for 354 yards in two seasons, hardly a shabby total. - Atlanta Journal Constitution
