5. JuJu Smith-Schuster – USC
Aside from having one of the most fun names in college football, JuJu Smith-Schuster proved to be one of the more talented receivers in college football last year.
Smith-Schuster finished the year with 90 catches for 914 yards and 10 touchdowns. Smith-Schuster has good size and is a pretty big target in the middle of the field, making him a potentially solid possession receiver in the NFL.
Perhaps the biggest concern about Smith-Schuster is his ability to separate himself from cornerbacks. He’s shown to have good speed, but has had some trouble separating himself down the field.
Smith-Schuster’s most useful role in the NFL will likely be as a flanker receiver, one who goes across the middle of the field, catching the tough balls on slant routes and handling some blocking.
Because he’s not so explosive, Smith-Schuster could possibly fall to the second round, and if he does, he seems like he’d be a good fit for the Ravens who are in desperate need of a solid possession receiver.
