Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER: Southern Cal, 6013 215 4.56. Junior entry. Three-year starter from Signal Hill, CA. Good sized frame. Above average arm length. Has strong consistent hands. Attacks the football with effort. Plucks the football out of the air. Possesses good play strength. Shows off a physical competitive edge to his game. Good footwork to get off the line of scrimmage versus the press. Will compete for extra yardage after the catch. Shows strong hands and ability to sustain his block in the run game. A little stiff in his route running. Needs more savvy stems and fakes to get defensive backs moving their hips. Doesn’t have suddenness or burst out of his route breaks. Doesn’t maintain his route speed all the way down the field, will gear down to track deep ball. Will get widened off route path by physical corners, needs to use his hands more efficiently to fight off corners. Has a lazy stance at times. Strong, physical possession receiver who has enough deep speed to be a number two receiver on Sundays. Good strength and ability to compete for 50/50 balls. Will need to become an effective route runner to have success. Physical enough to contribute in the run game. Has a competitive spirit to his game that is energizing. Day two prospect that would provide an offense a solid reliable target. 2016 stats: 70-914, 13.1 ypr, 10 TD. OSR:35/60. Second/third round. (A-32 7/8, H-10 1/2, VJ-32.5, SS-DNP).
