The Minnesota Vikings drafted Justin Jefferson (6/16/1999) with the 22nd overall pick in the 1st round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He played college ball at LSU catching passes from fellow rookie of the year contender Joe Burrow.



Jefferson stands 6’11” and tips the scales at around 205 lbs. In 2019 at LSU, he caught 111 passes for 1,540 yards and 18 touchdowns en route to winning the 2019 Colege Football National Playoff Championship (LSU defeated Clemson 42 to 25).

“Smooth operator and a true route technician… varies his route tempo to keep corners guessing and there is plenty of variance to how he releases into his stem”
