(4) JuJu Smith-Schuster vs (13) K.D. Cannon

After 2015, JuJu Smith-Schuster was positioned to be the top WR coming into 2016. During his sophomore season, Smith-Schuster posted 1,454 yards and 10 touchdowns at a clip of 16.3 ypr. Unfortunately, injury and QB play caused Smith-Schuster’s numbers to drop in 2016. Smith-Schuster does still tout the No. 2 Phenom Index score among WRs in this tournament. Will that be enough to move him on? Cannon has arguably outperformed Smith-Schuster when looking at both player’s total college production. Cannon also produced at a young age, posting over 1,000 yards and 8 touchdowns in his freshman year. For his career, Cannon posted a robust 16 ypr. Cannon gets knocked as being a product of the Baylor system, however multiple WRs from that program have been able to carve out a role in the NFL. Can Cannon do the same and advance in this matchup?       Screenshot (36)
