Over the Middle
Excels at finding soft spots in the zone.
Runs nice routes; extends hands to make the catch; finds soft spots in zones easily; plucks the ball from the highest point on jump balls; Demonstrates the ability to get separation from defensive backs on his routes; has no issues making tough grabs in traffic.
Doesn't have elite speed or athleticism; Inconsistent in getting separation. Will let balls into his body on occasion;
Smith-Schuster is a good prospect as a #2 receiver. He lacks the size, speed, or athleticism required to be a number 1 in the NFL, but he usually catches the balls he is supposed to and is comfortable in traffic and over the middle. He should start off as a #3 or 4 receiver but has the chance to emerge as a starter in time.
