You know why it’s important that freshman wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown is already looking ready to go as a big-time receiver this season, just like Robert Woods, Marqise Lee and JuJu Smith-Schuster were during their first training camps?
Because Tee Martin doesn’t exactly develop receivers.
So USC needs guys like St. Brown, who are game ready their first day of college practice.
Have you seen receivers develop the past 2-3 years?
St. Brown will be like Woods, Lee or Smith-Schuster. He will make big plays from Day 1. And that is what USC needs because during Martin’s tenure, receivers are either ready or they are not.
The fans will point to Deontay Burnett as an exception. But you could also argue Burnett never really got an opportunity and when he did, he took advantage of it. Even if we say Burnett developed, who else did? And why did Burnett regress last season?
