Coming off a national title win, Justin Jefferson chose to declare for the NFL Draft instead of returning for his senior season. He enters after a true junior season that saw him catch 111 passes for over 1,500 receiving yards and 18 receiving touchdowns. He’s not the top WR in nearly anyone’s rankings, but if we put his production in some context, he’s got a good case for the top spot in the class.
Jefferson was a three-star recruit from Destrehan, Louisiana — about a 1.5-hour drive from LSU’s stadium. His home state university was by far the most prestigious program — and one of only three Power Five schools — to make him an offer.
After unofficially redshirting his freshman season, Jefferson broke out in his true sophomore year.
