Three-year starter named Second Team All-Pac-12 in 2016 after making 70 catches for 914 yards and 10 touchdowns. Set career highs with 89 receptions and 1,454 yards as a sophomore on his way to Second Team All-American honors and caught 10 touchdowns. Caught 54 passes for 724 yards and five scores in 2014, garnering Freshman All-American recognition.
Super productive college receiver with starting potential at the next level. Sells routes, comes back to the ball to make himself an available target and extends his hands to catch the pass away from his frame. Battles defensive backs to get separation, fights to come away with the difficult catch and displays a sense of timing. Plays with balance and body control and possesses top hand-eye coordination. Follows the quarterback across the field, keeps the play in bounds running after the catch and gives effort.
Unnecessarily lets the ball get inside him at times and drops catchable throws. Possesses average quickness, lacks deep speed and does not threaten deep.
Smith-Schuster was a solid college receiver and a very good football player with ordinary speed. He lacks great upside potential but in the proper system, Smith-Schuster could line up with the starting unit on Sunday.
