WR Justin Jefferson

WR Justin Jefferson

LSU | Junior

Round 1, Pick 22

Justin is the third Jefferson brother to suit up for LSU, with Jordan playing quarterback for the Tigers (2008-11) and Rickey lining up at safety (2013-16). The star receiver and kick returner from New Orleans-area Destrehan High School played in just four games as a freshman in 2017, making no receptions. Coaches trusted him to lead the offense in 2018, however, and Jefferson became the team's top pass-catcher, with 54 grabs for 875 yards (16.2 yards per catch) and six scores in 13 games (12 starts). Jefferson not only led the national-champion Tigers in receptions in 2019, but he tied for the FBS lead with 111 (for 1,540 yards, 13.9 yards per catch) in 15 starts. He finished second in the nation to teammate Ja'Marr Chase with 18 receiving touchdowns. -
