After his 2022 season was cut short, Ohio State wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba will be a name to watch for both scouts and fans alike at the 2023 NFL Scouting Combine.

Notable stats, performance in college

Smith-Njigba brings three years of collegiate experience with the Buckeyes, finishing with 1,698 receiving yards and 10 receiving touchdowns. Despite being limited to just three games last season due to a nagging hamstring injury, the junior wideout’s production in the 2021 season should give a taste of the impact he can bring to an NFL franchise. He finished with 95 receptions for 1,595 yards and nine touchdowns, which earned him a place on the Third-team All-American list. His 2021 season saw him average 4.01 yards per route run, surpassing the averages of his then-teammates Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave, who were both selected in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
