Five USC players were drafted over the past three days, highlighted by Adoree' Jackson going in the first round to Tennessee and WR JuJu Smith-Schuster in the second to Pittsburgh, but the Trojans also had some high-profile snubs. OG Damien Mama was the only player in the Pac-12 to leave early and go undrafted, while first-team All-Pac-12 offensive lineman Chad Wheeler also didn't get picked.

Safety Leon McQuay of USC is the Chiefs' final scheduled pick of this year's draft. McQuay, a sixth-round pick, won't get much playing time as a rookie other than on special teams. The Chiefs are set with their top three safeties with Eric Berry, Ron Parker and Daniel Sorensen.

The Colts have finally taken their first offensive player in the draft. They selected USC offensive lineman Zach Banner with the 137th overall pick. The pick the Colts used on Banner was the one they received from New England as part of the trade for tight end Dwayne Allen

Here are the Steelers' picks so far through the first three rounds of the draft: 1. T.J. Watt, OLB, Wisconsin; 2. JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, USC; 3. Cameron Sutton, CB, Tennessee; 4. James Conner, RB, Pitt.
The former USC receiver celebrated his draft selection by jumping into the Pacific Ocean while wearing a T-shirt, jeans and shoes.
Steelers add another weapon in JuJu Smith-Schuster
The newest target for Ben Roethlisberger can make big catches look routine, but Mel Kiper Jr. wonders whether the USC receiver will be able to create separation at the next level.

The Steelers add to an already loaded offense with USC wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster with the 62nd overall pick. The Steelers wanted to add a playmaker in the first few rounds, knowing Martavis Bryant has work to do to return from suspension. The Steelers like Smith-Schuster'a all-around game - he's big (6-foot-2) and plays tough, fast enough. Not a consistent wow playmaker like Bryant and Antonio Brown but very solid pick.

The Titans ask their new players to name a living or historical figure they would like to meet. Adoree' Jackson's answer: "The guy who invented Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (Harry Burnett ‘H.B.' Reese). A genius. That's my favorite candy. I eat that like it ain't nothing."

Adoree' Jackson, drafted 18th overall by the Tennessee Titans, tells John Clayton the place he'll be spending his first NFL paycheck is at McDonald's. The former USC Trojan is known for his love of their fries and sweet tea

I think NFL teams came to the realization that the only thing wrong with Adoree Jackson's game (outside of lacking ideal size) is that he's never been able to focus on developing his technique due to obligations on offense/special teams/USC's track team. He's a special playmaker who shows easy speed on tape.

USC's Adoree' Jackson, who grew up near St. Louis and remained an avid Rams fan, is off the board to the Titans, who earlier reached to take Corey Davis with the Rams' No. 5 pick. He's the fifth DB taken, after Jamal Adams, Marshon Lattimore, Malik Hooker and Marlon Humphrey. Rams have to go best player available at 37 on Friday.

CB Adoree' Jackson gives the Titans game-breaking ability on special teams and the ball skills in the secondary. Smooth footwork. And don't be surprised if the Titans script a package of offensive plays to get the ball in his hands.
