The all-time University of Arkansas NFL team features a pair of Smiths and an Alworth

Billy Ray Smith was one heck of a football player – All-America at Arkansas and both a Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion in the NFL.

The stat line is impressive — 23 NFL seasons, 97 career sacks, 16 fumble recoveries, 15 steals.

If that sounds a bit much for one player, it is. There were two Billy Ray Smiths, father and son, and both hold down spots on the all-time University of Arkansas NFL team. The above stat line is a combination of their careers.

Billy Ray Smith Sr., was a defensive tackle who played 13 NFL seasons and won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Colts. He went to two Pro Bowls and collected 70 career sacks, 16 fumbles recoveries and an interception.
