Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about JUSTIN JEFFERSON: LSU, 6012 202 4.46. Junior entry, two-year starter, St. Rose, LA. Earned second-team All SEC honors in 2019. The top pass catcher for LSU each of the past two years whose 18 touchdowns last fall were second in the nation only to teammate Ja’Marr Chase. Jefferson played primarily out of the slot in 2019 and because of his crisp route running and smooth ball skills, it will likely be his ideal spot in the NFL. Has great twitch and transition for a player with his length and will create unique opportunities in that role at the next level. While his playing strength can be questioned, he proved his ability to impact a game short and deep. Lean and athletic build. Very bendy receiver with particular looseness below the waist. Great flexion and extension in his hips and ankles. Allows him to seamlessly get in and out of his breaks as a route runner. Creates separation via movement consistently. Makes sharp cuts in and out of breaks. Fast to locate the ball and gets his hands up in a hurry. Plucks the ball out of the air and will get to anything within his reach. Has late hands. Excellent body control and spatial awareness near defenders and boundaries. Smooth and easy acceleration. Efficient movement. Plays faster than he times. Productive and a true gamer Needs bulk and additional functional strength. Can be thrown off his point by a physical corner. Doesn’t have a lot of staying power against traffic when the ball is in the air. 2019 stats: 111-1540, 13.8 ypr, 18 TD. OSR:14/ 51. First/second round. (A-33, H-9 1/8, VJ-37.5, SS-DNP).
