JuJu Smith-Schuster

Strengths:

  • Size
  • Ball tracking
  • YAC
  • Blocking
  • Willing to work over the middle

Analysis: JuJu Smith-Schuster has outstanding size and is a very available target. Showed no concern working over the middle in USC’s offense.  Works back to the ball as aggressively as he needs to when defenders are attempting to ball-hawk. Searches and sinks into the optimal openings against zone coverage. Plays to his size and has plus route strength. Shows effective uses of frame to shield cornerbacks from contested catches. Tremendous ball tracker with ability to search, find and follow the pass in over his shoulder. Has body control to twist and contort in mid-air to pull the throw in. Has field vision after catch for maximum YAC yardage. Reliable blocker who can help spring a big run. Able to sustain blocks with power.

Weaknesses:

  • Needs better release
  • Doesn’t have break away speed
  • Struggles with contested catches

Analysis: JuJu Smith-Schuster needs to get better at freeing himself at the break point of his routes. Doesn’t seem to get cornerbacks tilting with his routes. Missing the sudden acceleration out of his cuts to generate separation and an easy throwing window. Contested catches will have to be a big part of his future.  Can be slow to release against press coverage. An interesting stat— Eight of his ten touchdowns this season came in three games.

NFL Comparison: Vincent Jackson

Draft Projection: Late Round 1, Early Round 2
