WATCH: Vikings’ TE Irv Smith Jr. scores TD in NFL Preseason debut

Another alumnus of the University of Alabama made its presence felt in preseason action for the National Football League. After Mack Wilson took an interception back for a touchdown for the Cleveland Browns, tight end Irv Smith Jr. recorded his first touchdown for the Minnesota Vikings.

A native of New Orleans, La., Smith was taken in the second round (No. 50 overall) by the Vikings in this year’s draft. The 6-foot-2, 242-pounder put together a smooth performance at the NFL Scouting Combine — clocking a 40-time of 4.63 seconds, displaying a 32.5” vert and maneuvering through the gauntlet drill with ease.
