Overall:

JuJu Smith-Schuster left USC after his junior season.  In 2016, he had a disappointing season due in large part to various injuries.  He has a big frame, strong hands and plays with a physical edge.  He consistently makes difficult catches in traffic.  He lacks top end speed and needs to continue to improve as a route runner.  He looks like a possession WR and profiles more as a No.2 target at the next level.  He should be a Day 2 pick.
