In the past two seasons alone, USC has sent 10 players to the next level via the draft. Second-rounder Su'a Cravens led a group of four picks last season, while first-rounders Leonard Williams (sixth overall) and Nelson Agholor (20th overall) led a group of six selections in 2015.
Since 2011, USC has had 29 players drafted by NFL teams and will look to add to that number this season. We should see a couple more Trojans get drafted early this year, as USC had some serious talent on the roster.
HEROSports.com's NFL Draft Analyst Todd Worly has ranked two USC prospects in the Top 50, both who have the potential to make an immediate impact on their future NFL teams.
Here are his assessments of each player:
Smith-Schuster has the combination of size, explosiveness, suddenness and top-end speed to create separation at the next level, and the hands outside his frame and in traffic to earn his quarterback’s trust from day one.
Jackson’s hips, feet, explosiveness and recovery speed are on par with the corners at the top of the draft, but his instincts, physicality and tackling ability aren’t at this point.
