  Draft Scout by Conference

  Jaxon Smith-Njigba went from being the third wheel among Ohio State football's starting wide receivers to having the best statistical season in program history. Now he's back for Year 3 in 2022, and there's really only one question: Can he top it? Smith-Njigba is C.J. Stroud's best and favorite weapon while also playing in the slot, which has routinely been a high-usage spot in the Buckeyes' offense. As the only returning starter in the wide receiver room, that could be taken to another level.

Nevada's Trevor Insley is the only player to eclipse 2,000 yards in a season when he did it in 1999. His 2,060 yards were 454 more than Smith-Njigba. But by potentially playing two more games this season, it's not crazy to think he could top that total. Doing so is at the very least at the back of his mind heading into the season. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't thinking about it," Smith-Njigba said. "I think about everything, honestly. I don't try to let it control me. I try to control what I can control, and that's me showing up Saturdays and pouring my heart out." - Cleveland Plain Dealer
