Jefferson is the real deal. I think he's gone in the teens.

There may be some who say he played a lot in the slot (in which he did) however he has ability to play on the outside as well. Body control, instincts, already familiar with Pro concepts & is polished as a route runner.

My LSU homer glasses are off ... JJ is very good WR Pro prospect and was solid before Burrow arrived at LSU .

His combine & Pro Day performances are just gravy for him.

Trust the tape.

Wouldn't be sad if we took Jefferson as he'd be a quick-study in adapting to the Saints offense, but I'd be surprised Sean took an LSU player...

However Reagor's plays the game so much faster and with it being a copy-cat league, Saints, specifically Sean, will want his own Tyreek Hill sans off-the-field drama...

Having that home-run threat on every play will open this offense up as when we had Cooks and Thomas at the same time which was as lethal as anything the KC Chiefs have had recently...

Yep.

I hope this draft is different. There is simply too much talent 70 miles away from Metarie Drive to ignore. Defensive backs, RB, WR & LB.

Same goes for other LA schools ... Nicholls St., La Tech, USL, Grambling, SU or whatever.

Due Diligence.
