Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about VAN JEFFERSON: Florida, 6014 200 4.55. Two-year starter, Brentwood, TN. Led the Gators in receiving both years. Began his career at Ole Miss where he started and finished second on the team in catches among a group of pass catchers that included Evan Engram, AJ Brown, and DK Metcalf. He transferred to Florida after graduating in just three years, giving him two more seasons of eligibility. Father Shawn is a former NFL wide receiver and also the current Jets’ receiver coach. It is obvious he is coming into the league with a deep understanding of the game on multiple levels. He runs impeccable routes, catches everything he gets his hands on, and will make things happen with the ball in his hands. May not have the top tier physical traits when it comes to size and speed, but he is almost a sure-bet to be a productive player at the next level. Wiry, strong build that will play bigger than his listed size. A sophisticated, fully developed route runner who will create separation on all levels of the route tree. Plucks the ball out of the air with both hands and will rarely let it hit the ground. Has a wide catch radius, making the difficult catches look easy. Shows the toughness in traffic to put himself on the line with defenders bearing down. Shows outstanding contact balance and ability to bounce off tacklers after the catch. Hasn’t shown the speed to knife through a secondary, won’t push the defense vertically. Acceleration doesn’t jump off the screen. Has never been a big play threat. 2019 stats: 49-657, 13.4 ypr, 6 TD. Medical exclusion at Combine. Third/ fourth round. (A-32 3/4, H-9 1/8, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
