Overall

Van Jefferson may be one of the best route runners in the class. He has great speed an acceleration in and out of his breaks creating separation with ease. Even with his limited athletic ability he still makes plays. Adding some muscle/bulk wouldn’t be a bad thing for van. Van had a fracture in his foot during the NFL combine and didn’t get to participate. He is currently looking like a 3rd round pick.
