Justin Jefferson is a wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings. He competed for Louisiana State University in college, where he played and, in 2019, claimed a National Championship.
Jefferson, who was selected by the Vikings in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, was the top rookie wide receiver in his class and, arguably, in the past 10 years.
Justin Jefferson stated he would forgo his senior year and join the 2020 NFL Draft shortly after LSU won the national championship. With the 22nd overall pick in the first round, the Minnesota Vikings chose Jefferson.
