JuJu Smith-Schuster is on a quest to make NFL scouts eat their words.
The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver appeared to throw shade at NFL scouts following his breakout performance against the Detroit Lions in Week 8. After catching seven passes for 193 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers’ 20-15 win, Smith-Schuster posted part of his scouting report early Monday morning on Twitter.
Smith-Schuster later shared video of his biggest play, a 97-yard touchdown reception, which represented the winning score. He showed little problem seperating from NFL cornerbacks.
The Steelers picked Smith-Schuster in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, and he has since become a genuine threat on the field and a fan favorite due to his endearing social media presence off it. As the ranks of his admirers grow, it seems he has closed the bandwagon door to NFL scouts who doubted his ability based on his time at the University of Southern California.
