  • Takes false steps

Overall

Malik Jefferson is a great player when he guesses right on the field. Unfortunately, he is very inconsistent: sometimes he makes plays that make him look like a future all pro, and other times he gambles and doesn’t follow the play. Despite this, his superior athleticism will get him drafted high. In the right scheme with the right coach he could be a solid NFL player. He is currently being looked at as a 4th round pick.
