Second USC player taken.

NCAA Football: Arizona State at Southern California Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The USC Trojans have their second prospect of the 2017 NFL Draft heading up to the big leagues! USC wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was taken 30th overall in the second round by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Check out SB Nation to get more from their scouting report:

JuJu Smith-Schuster isn’t a speed demon like some of the other receivers in this draft class, but he provides an element coaches want out their receivers: grit. He isn't afraid to battle for 50-50 balls, run routes over the middle of the field, or deliver bone-crushing blocks. At 6’2, 216 pounds, he has the size to shield defenders from the ball and snag it. His play style is Anquan Bolden-esque.

Pittsburgh should be excited about selecting Smith-Schuster because he plays with intensity and loves to get physical with defenders. He’s also an excellent run-blocker.
