It’s the fourth week of the NFL preseason, which means it’s time for some of the league’s unheralded players to shine.
Atlanta Falcons running back Antone Smith certainly fits into the group and the 28-year-old pulled off an impressive 66-yard catch-and-run score versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Smith has only six career NFL carries, but one might not think that from watching that play. He does an excellent job of breaking tackles and finding space on his way to the endzone.
Smith hasn’t done much else on the evening. His four carries in the game have gone for zero yards and his only other reception in the game went for six yards.
T.J. Yates, Smith’s quarterback on the play, has a whopping 238 yards on 14-16 passing for two touchdowns. Yates certainly partially owes Smith for his numbers looking so strong.
Smith has five years of NFL experience and went undrafted out of Florida State
