Video: Third & JuJu – 2016 USC 3rd Down Receptions

In a Sunday post, I wrote about new Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and how I think he might be able to make somewhat of an immediate impact on offense during his rookie season on third downs and inside the opponent’s red zone due to the success he had in those two key areas during his college career at USC. While I had hoped to have a video showing his third down receptions last season as part of that post by the end of the evening, I wasn’t able to get done in time.

Instead of bumping that aforementioned post, I thought I would create a new one and include the compilation video of all the third down catches that Smith-Schuster had for USC in 2016. In total there were 20 such receptions and it’s interesting to see how he won on those plays, the yards after catch he registered and where he lined up on offense.

As you can see in the play-by-play I provided below the video, Smith-Schuster only failed to convert four of his 20 total third down receptions in 2016.
