Here’s a look at the USC players who might be selected this week in the NFL draft:

AUSTIN JACKSON

Position: Left tackle

Year: Junior

Size: 6-foot-5, 322 pounds

Possible round: 1st-2nd

What they’re saying: “Jackson will make youthful mistakes as a rookie, but he might also outplay his draft spot if he lives up to his immense potential.” — Dane Brugler, The Athletic.

MICHAEL PITTMAN JR.

Position: Wide receiver

Year: Senior

Size: 6-foot-4, 223 pounds
