Draft Profile: Florida WR Van Jefferson

22 January 2020 DRAFT


Van Jefferson 2020 NFL Draft Profile

Measureables: 6’2″ 197 LBs

I remember when Jefferson was initally a 4 star recruit out of high school because of his dad Shawn Jefferson who appeared in 2 Super Bowls in his 13-year career and had a very solid career. Van was a highly recruited WR from the jump and had a solid career at Florida. He is an absolute technician with is routes, flashing his hands late, and making tough catches. He has impressed early at practices for the senior bowl this week and creating alot of buzz. Look for him to increase his stock Saturday. On a side note, my vote for our new WR coach, Maurice Harris, recruited Jefferson out of high school to Ole Miss before he transfered to Florida.
