Overview:

Smith-Schuster was very productive at USC, with 231 receptions, over 3000 receiving yards, and 25 receiving touchdowns. He has good size, He is a clutch receiver, he is also a dynamic play maker, he commands double teams, and he always gets enough yards needed for a first down. He also catches everything thrown his way, and he always seem to be wide open. He does tend to miss some blocks at times, and he has had fumbling issues at times. Smith-Schuster has the talent to be a 1st round pick, but I expect him to end up going in the 2nd round, with the possibility that he slides to the 3rd round, where he would be steal for whoever drafts him.
