JuJu Smith-Schuster: JuJu Smith-Schuster goes to Steelers at 62

-He was a productive wide receiver in a power conference, with a combined 159 catches for 2,368 yards and 20 touchdowns the past two seasons for USC in the Pac-12.

Smith-Schuster was the youngest National Football League prospect out there as he won't turn 21 until late-November. With Rogers in the slot, Smith-Schuster and others can become interchangeable parts in the offense. He ran a respectable 4.54 forty with a 10-foot broad jump in Indy. This was only further reminder why the Steelers found themselves selecting Smith-Schuster in the second round.

"I think we're trying to find good players all the time and create that competition", said Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

Smith-Schuster, who entered the draft after his junior season, is the 15th Trojan wide receiver drafted since 2000, including the eighth in the top two rounds.

The Steelers often have cited their desire to take younger players because their bodies are still maturing, and their potential has not yet been fully tapped.

Smith-Schuster's physical play and toughness are expected to make him a favorable target for Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

He earned second-team All-American in 2015 when he caught 89 passes for 1,454 yards.

He will take some much needed pressure off of All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown. Head coach Mike Tomlin wasn't amused, making a rare appearance on Twitter to tell them both to "play nice".

Sutton, a four-year starter, holds the record at Tennessee with 37 pass breakups and also had seven career interceptions. From whereabouts unknown, Bryant started the feud by posting to Twitter: "lol that's Sammie coates replacement not minds take it how you want to I am back".
