Stock Up: Torrey Smith
The younger half of the Smith & Smith law firm has already been a human highlight reel early in camp, and has been lavished with praise for his work ethic as well. Even John Harbaugh predicted Smith would break out this year, which is pretty funny because he already had a breakout season last year.

T. Smith was once known as a straight line speedster only but has improved his route running considerably. He might see less targets this season because of the increased emphasis on the ground game and the number of pass catchers around him, but it will also help him see less double teams.
T. Smith, who is in a contract year, has stated that he isn’t worried about receiving a contract extension. It might be a savvy move to wait until after this season, considering how much progress he has made and the fact that he hasn’t reached his ceiling yet. If Smith can prove that he is a top flight wide receiver in the league, he will increase his net worth exponentially.
