The USC Trojans football team is losing a ton of talent this offseason. With the 2021 NFL Draft more than two months away, prospects are gearing up to make favorable impressions during their pro days.

Pro Football Focus released its top 300 NFL Draft prospects and seven Trojans made the list.

It’s no surprise to see offensive lineman Alijah Vera-Tucker ranked as the highest USC player. Michael Renner of PFF put the big man No. 30 on its list.

“Vera-Tucker’s quality play at tackle this past season made us feel even better about him on the inside. He earned an 81.8 overall grade and showed some fantastic ability to play in space.”

The next Trojan on the list is wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown, who comes in at No. 100. St. Brown had 41 receptions for 478 yards and seven touchdowns last season. The 21-year-old will join fellow Trojan wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. in the NFL.

“St. Brown had a lackluster junior year when asked to play outside full-time,” Renner wrote. “He’s got good ball skills and is tough after the catch, but he struggled to separate deep consistently.”

PFF has five more USC players ranked in its top 300.

Jay Tufele (No. 125)
Marlon Tuipuloto (No. 129)
Talanoa Hufanga (No. 148)
Tyler Vaughns (No. 274)
Olaijah Griffin (No. 290)
