Agreed. Lee had a good college career, but man he seems to lack that toughness.. he seems fragile, and USC has a long track history of producing NFL WR's that never pan out. I think Key was the last great one.
I think some players were just way overhyped when they were never really that good. Can't blame the school all the time. Robert Woods, who came out of USC last year, had a very good rookie year really, comparatively speaking -- and that was playing with a rookie QB throwing to him to.
In 14 games he had 40 catches for 587 yards and 3 TDs, which was 5th among rookie WRs. Compare that to the 1st WR selected, Tavon Austin's 40 receptions for 418 yards, 4 TDs. The only rookies with more yards than Woods were Hopkins, Kenny Stills, Keenan Allen, and Terrance Williams. I think once Woods starts to shine even further, the "USC churns out busts" thing will have to stop.
