Strong Points

Excellent size with length and big hands. Physical receiver who plays with strength and power. Very good athlete, smooth with very good body control. Has speed and plays faster than timed. Gets to full speed quickly and can change direction quickly. Good to very good route runner and is able to get in and out of cuts quickly to gain separation. Has excellent hands and will compete in traffic. Tracks the ball well and wins jump balls.

Weak Points

Did not run as fast as anticipated at the Combine. Will have the occasional concentration drop.

The Way We See It

JuJu is easily one of the better receivers in this draft but he doesn't get the recognition he deserves. He is a third-year junior and has dominated college football since his freshman year. Has 213 career receptions and 25 touchdowns. He is the rare complete package coming out of college because of the offensive system he played in at USC. JuJu is able to get separation on both long and short routes, competes in traffic and wins jump balls. He can adjust to the ball and consistently makes the difficult catch. After the catch, he is like a running back with his elusiveness and strength. Some have compared him to Dez Bryant because of his physical style of play. Will eventually become a club's No. 1 wide receiver.
