He's a guy I really like as a prospect and he released a Cover Letter for GMs as you would for a job interview.

Check it out... https://www.theplayerstribune.com/juju-smith-schuster-usc-nfl-draft-cover-letter/

He has shot way up in my estimation now, seems genuine and driver kid.

It seems like a clever PR stunt by his agent more than anything. Any team that has a chance to draft him should've already had interviews by now, so he's not saying anything new (or at least, he shouldn't be).

That being said, I do really like what he says in that letter. The things he talks about are exactly what you want in a football player. For being in LA, Juju kept relatively quiet off the field, so I think he does have the character (and the athleticism) to succeed.

Yeah I'm trying not to be too cynical about it, I did think it could be a stunt - especially since it has been made public. But like you say, have to take it in context - he was a pretty big name in college football at a big school and managed to get through that without any controversy. He also got his degree in 3 years which shows real dedication.

So I would be willing to take it on his word that he is dedicated and of good character.

I had the same take as Blake on this. I remember being wowed by the page that Josh Gordon set up and thought that he finally got his act together. I was wrong there. And that's left me a bit cynical when looking at ideas like this.

It's an interesting tactic. I like how it is set up and seems sincere. At this point I think most teams know who he is and ranks on their boards. But hey it doesn't hurt and I'm not going to blame the kid for doing everything he can to impress and even brown nose a bit. Given the background you guys stated above I would say that he is just trying to get in good with the NFL and the team that drafts him.

James Connor just did the same thing: https://www.theplayerstribune.com/james-conner-pitt-letter-to-nfl-gms/

Maybe its The Players Tribune pushing these types of articles instead of the sports agents?

Ah so seems like the Players Tribune is running a bit of a series. Well that takes some shine off it, but to be honest I really enjoyed reading both and I think they come across really well.

I haven't given that Connor much of a look tbh, but I think I will go back and watch some of his stuff now.

His story is about as cool as it gets. A 2* DE turned RB superstar at a P5 team, beating cancer, and then coming back to have a great senior year. The work ethic something like that would take is both insane and inspirational.

I think Ju Ju will be a playear that will perform above his draft position in both the NFL and rookie drafts. He is the USC WR that breaks the mold of weak NFL talents.

The guy could be the next "big" thing. He may be there when the Vikings pick in the 2nd.

Was hearing my Cowboys are interested in him too. Don't know if I love it given our defensive issues. Seems more of a want rather than need.

Playing in the numerous NCAA fantasy leagues that I do, I've followed JuJu since he was a junior at Long Beach Poly along with Iman Marshall (current DB at USC).
He reminds me a lot of another former USC WR in Marqise Lee (Jacksonville). Similar stats at USC and both suffered thru several injuries at the college level.
Question will be can he find his spot on the field and eventually become the Steelers No. 2 option.

USC receivers don't have a great track record in the league...

Very true. Other than Steve Smith.

Although, I have to admit Marqise Lee had a much better year in 2016 than he did his first two years in the league as he ranked 39th in receptions and 36th in WR yards last season.

I think you're thinking of the wrong Steve Smith... the HOF Steve Smith went to Utah. The USC (aka shitty steve smith) was out of the league after 2-3 years.

Anyone follow the JuJu twitter Account - https://twitter.com/teamjuju?lang=en

This shit about his bike going missing has been hilarious. He seems like a really cool kid!

Does anyone know who the girl is, or what the story is, with this series of tweets and replies?

https://twitter.com/TeamJuJu/status/923021770679926784

Sorry, the answer was above -- it's Mia Khalifa. Anyway, a funny read except for the SJWs out there.

Mia Khalifa was a porn star and now she is like a 'social media' type & she loves Football. But she has also burned a few sports stars who have 'slid into her DMs' by shaming them on Twitter by posting their conversations...
Think she burned a few basketball players

So he was just saying 'im not that stupid' to have any communications with her that she can burn him with later.

Very funny though.

Ha. I remember similar comments when Hunt started playing well for the Chiefs and things working out well for people who bought into that hype.

Thing is there is no reason why JuJu can't be a great receiver. Here is my case:

Youngest player in the league.
Really good offence (although it could be Bens last year that is a reason for concern).
Great blocker which means he is on the field virtually every snap.
It isn't working out with Bryant, who might get traded or cut this week - leaving him as the clear no2 to Brown.
He can play in the slot or out wide, giving him great positional flexibility which again leads to more time on field & more targets
Physically he has everything you would want to build a great receiver


So all things considered. Fuck it, I'm on the hype train and going to enjoy the ride

So what you're saying is maybe it's not a great idea to draft a WR in 1st round

No, you only get made fun of for running a franchise full of thugs.  laughing

But I did trade away Burfict.  

I took another look at the hit and it doesn't bother me as much as it did in real time.  I actually like a WR that will step up and deliver a huge hit.

Whenever a guys gets hit when he doesn't see the block coming, it always looks bad because he never braced for the impact.  The hit didn't bother me either.  I didn't like him standing over Burfict afterwards.  Even his own offensive lineman was trying to grab him and get Ju Ju to move.

The hit on AB seemed a lot more worse to me and I didn't think he would be getting up.  However, it didn't even seem to faze him. Shocked

If I owned JuJu I'd be legitimately concerned the Vontaze will come back and kill him next time these teams play
