Justin Jefferson 2020 NFL Draft Profile
Measureables: 6’3″ 200 LBs
National Champion Justin Jefferson has been a personal favorite of mine for awhile. It helps that I am an LSU fan so it gave me an advantage but after the game against Oklahoma, the entire world was put on notice. With a blood of two other brothers who played at LSU, Jefferson was only a 2-star recruit but he is leaving LSU as the most accomplished and as a national champion. Jefferson is a fun loving player who is as reliable as they come. He is always open and ready to make the simple and the remarkable plays. He is a perfect size to play inside or outside. His family and past LSU receivers (Odell, Landry, Chark) will always be on him to keep progressing and striving for greatness. His 111-1,540-18 2019 statline is incredible, especially given their level of competition. He would do great things in Philly!

Here’s a guy I’ve been lobbying for since day 1. LSU’s Justin Jefferson is an absolute stud. More importantly, he’s a great kid who just wants to make a play for his teammates. We all saw him torch Oklahoma in the playoff but he’s been snapping all year. 102-1,434-18 pic.twitter.com/imGXoFuPmi
