JuJu Smith-Schuster – Wide Receiver, USC
If the Buccaneers want to find a guy who could be their number two in this year’s draft, then JuJu Smith-Schuster may be him.
Last year, the Saints nabbed a second round receiver who was criticized for lack of speed and separation ability named Michael Thomas.
Smith-Schuster could be this year’s Thomas. By this, I mean he’s a young receiver with plenty of upside and the ability to play short, deep and in the intermediate levels of the defense.
He’ll high-point a pass, fight for receptions, work back to his quarterback and turn a short catch into a long first down.
With these attributes it’s hard to imagine some even have him falling into the second half of day two at the NFL Draft, but the combine should clear some of this right up.
He’s a solid second-round pick and given the right situation, could turn into one of the better pro receivers in this year’s rookie class.
