If true, it's a devastating blow to one of the top talents heading into the 2016 NFL Draft. But not all hope is lost, according to former Texas A&M offensive lineman and current Cincinnati Bengal Cedric Ogbuehi.

Ogbuehi, who tore his ACL in December of 2014, was still selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, so he took to Twitter Friday evening to provide Smith with some words of encouragement during a difficult time.
