JuJu Smith-Schuster, John Ross Talk With The Redskins At The Combine


JuJu Smith-Schuster and John Ross -- two of the best wide receivers in the Class of 2017 -- have spoken with the Redskins as Washington continues to evaluate talent.

The Washington Redskins continued their interview process with college prospects by speaking with wide receivers John Ross and JuJu Smith-Schuster at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

The pair of talented wide receivers join running backs Dalvin Cook of Florida State and Christian McCaffrey of Stanford to speak with the Redskins this week.

Smith-Schuster said he had a "great meeting" with Washington.

In three seasons with USC, Smith-Schuster has collected 213 receptions for 3,092 yards and 25 touchdowns. Eleven times during his college career, the wide receiver recorded at least 100 receiving yards in a game.

During his final season with the Trojans, Smith-Schuster collected 70 receptions for 914 yards and 10 touchdowns. He capped off his time as a Trojan by hauling in seven receptions for 133 yards and a touchdown against Penn State in the Rose Bowl.

Like his former college teammate and current Redskins safety Su'a Cravens, Smith-Schuster is among the youngest invitees to the Combine this year.

Even though he is just 20 years old, Smith-Schuster remains confident that he can be an immediate contributor at the NFL level.

"It doesn't affect me," Smith-Schuster said. "I got a lot of questions [about] you are the youngest player, you're immature, you're 20 years old, but I don't see an age number.

"I can't change that. I feel like I played football for a very long time through the years. I think the age is actually good. A young dude who's willing to work."

While Smith-Schuster has spoken with Cravens yet about the draft process, playing against him in practices was quite the experience.

"It would be nice to play with Su'a to go against him," Smith-Schuster said. "The year he had this year was really good. I'm proud of him. I wish him the best."

Ross, meanwhile, comes from a familiar form of DeSean Jackson. During his sophomore season in 2015, Ross averaged nearly 22 yards per reception.

He was also a first-team All-Pac-12 selection in 2016, as he caught 81 passes for 1,150 yards and 17 touchdowns.
