New, comments

Looks like the second year wide receiver has been taking notes from Antonio Brown.

Antonio Brown is a freak of nature.

This is a known fact around the NFL, and especially with Pittsburgh Steelers fans. You have to imagine fellow wide receivers would start to take notes on how Brown goes about his business. It has been well documented how more and more receivers are hitting the JUGGS machine after practice, but it seems JuJu Smith-Schuster has been learning Brown’s “Place-and-Drag” sideline toe tapping technique.

Take a look at this nifty catch the second year wide receiver out of USC had a few days ago:

Watch the video again, and you see Smith-Schuster did indeed get two feet down before his momentum carried him out of bounds.

Smith-Schuster set a new standard for rookie wide receivers in Pittsburgh last season, and his sophomore season won’t be a cake walk. However, if this video shows just one way Smith-Schuster has improved his game, it is safe to say the Steelers’ wide receiving corps will be just fine in 2018.
