Report: Maryland WR Torrey Smith has workout with Patriots

Maryland wide receiver Torrey Smith has already conducted a private workout with the Patriots, according to the National Football Post.

A world-class speedster, the 6-foot-1, 204-pounder out of Maryland caught 67 passes for 1,075 yards and 12 touchdowns last season with the Terps. Smith also has special teams skills ‘€” as a sophomore, he broke his own record with 1,309 kickoff return yards (and 2,129 all-purpose yards), which included two kicks returned for touchdowns.

Like fellow Maryland wide receiver Darius Heyward-Bey ‘€” who had off-the-charts speed the previous year at the combine ‘€” Smith’€™s measureables at the combine drew raves. He ran the 40-yard dash between 4.37 and 4.41 seconds, and also finished wih a 41-inch vertical leap, a 10-foot-6 broad jump and 19 reps on the bench at 225 pounds.

Through the pre-draft process, Smith has reportedly been training with former Patriots wide receiver Donte Stallworth.

‘€œWith Donte, he’€™s working hard,’€ said Smith, who is projected by many to be a first-round pick. ‘€œWhen we were running our routes, he was telling us what to look for, whether we were getting out of our breaks fast enough, just real fundamental things.’€

Oh, and he’€™s pretty good on the basketball court as well. Check out the video below:
