Draft Scouting Report

Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 87.17 (Long-term starter)

Pro Comparison: Christian Kirk


Jaxon Smith-Njigba is a smaller, spindly WR with quality fluidity on the field. He's not an elite athlete and doesn't have much power through contact in his routes or after the catch. He creates space with some wiggle and how quicky he flips into top gear once the ball is in his hands. He glides around the field and away from defenders. He also had a knack for reeling in the difficult grab but is not a high-leaping, contested-catch monster; more of a tremendous ball-tracker. He has savvy YAC skills, deceptive speed, and ultra-reliable hands to be a big-time playmaker in the NFL despite not possessing supreme athletic gifts.


  • Savvy YAC specialty
  • Glides around the field
  • Uncanny ability to flip it into top gear in an instant
  • Ball-tracking downfield is elite


  • Not a supreme athlete
  • Spindly frame likely destined for a slot-only role in NFL
  • Lacks length and power

Combine Results:

  • Vertical: 35 inches
  • Broad Jump: 10 feet, 5 inches
  • 3-Cone Drill: 6.57 seconds
  • Shuttle Run: 3.93 seconds
