I'll tell you this, If you look back at his catches, Not only is he as sure handed as Derrick mason, but when he can make a play on the ball he catches the ball traffic as good as anyone and wont let go as defenders try to rip it away. We may have missed on getting some guys on the defensive side of the ball that are ready immediately but Torrey was a steal in second round.

I remember being so pumped when we drafted him. I thought he would be the return guy though, since that was what he was known for at UMD. But he hasn't failed to impress!!! Torrey could defiantly prove to be a number 1 WR. The first true number 1 we have ever had!!!!
Not bad for a guy that came to MD as a QB!!!!

The fact that he was able to play on, I don't know, 4 hours of sleep and after his brother just died really shows this man's true character.

There will never be enough torrey smith appreciation threads. This dude is not only a class act off the field, he has exceeded all expectations on the field. So glad bellicheck passed on him and let him fall in our laps in the second round

Imagine the Patriots fans upset about Bill selecting Ras-I-Dowling with their high 2nd round pick over Smith. If the Patriots got Smith I am sure they would have won the Super Bowl.

lol, the "I" has to stand for injured. But i was referring more to the pick they got from the saints for letting them come back in the first to draft ingram. It was 2 picks before our second round pick and bill picked shane vereen.

Torrey may very well finish the year with 10 TDs. He's averaging a TD almost once every four catches. He's a beast.

He does it all; catches in traffic, make people miss, good lead blocker on runs, and goes up and gets the football. Best receiver this team has drafted by a long shot. Not mention his hands have made a complete 360 improvement. He's on his way to a 12 TD season, which is pretty damn good. The one thing I would like him to improve on is his consistency to show up in every game. A large part of this is do to Flacco, Cam, and the O-line.

He could easily get 10 TDs if not more. He's already tied his rookie year totals.

couldnt agree more. really glad he has progressed and has really shown that he knows how to go to work. and even though people already said it, what he did against the patriots was just incredible. just like suggs said, this guy is becoming a true raven!

Those are awesome stats to have in your pocket. You know when you go to bars and weddings.

As a proud Terp and crazy Raven fan - so happy to have this guy!
Now if Joe would just stop over-throwing him, he could catch even more receptions.

He certainly is clutch - let's beat the Steelers!

Can't wait until he learns how to use his body to block out a defender and how to run a "comeback" route. I wish he had Mason to learn from.

When I read the title, I thought something else happend. His hands have gotten better. Will be top 5 WR in two or three years, I tell you. Streeter and Torrey will complement each other well.

A lot of that is Torrey has trouble tracking and adjusting to the ball, but he's getting better at it.

Love it....when a crazy starts talking jibberish, we're like vultures
