There’s never something like a “can’t-miss” kind of talent when it comes to the NFL Draft, but a handful of guys often come close to that distinction.
That might as well be the case with Ohio State star WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who several scouts believe could be the first wideout off the board in the upcoming edition of the draft.
Smith-Njigba surely helped his case with his performance at the NFL Scouting Combine.
He excelled at the short shuttle and 3-Cone Drill, although he did raise some questions after skipping the 40-yard dash.
Smith-Njigba will still showcase his speed at Ohio State’s Pro Day, so that might be more than enough to silence the doubters and those who claim that he’s not fast enough to make it to the next level.
And even if he’s not as fast as some other players, former NFL QB Dan Orlovsky believes he’s got all the traits that could make him an NFL star.
“We’re talking about a guy who’s got great feel, we’re talking about a guy who understands how to separate from his defender,” Orlovsky said.

Orlovsky raved about how he’s always able to create separation from his closest defender, his route-running, and how he can always create big gains after the catch, even as a slot receiver.
He went as far as to assure that he could be a WR1 at the next level, comparing him to Golden Tate and Stevie Johnson.
Smith-Njigba looks like a potential star.
He hauled in 110 receptions for 1,698 yards and 10 touchdowns over 23 games at Ohio State, and now he’s ready to wreak havoc in the pros as well.
