10 NCAA prospects Philadelphia Eagles can pair with DeSean Jackson
As if he wasn’t already the owner of a major name on every NFL team’s draft boards, Justin Jefferson saw his draft stock explode after a dominating performance versus the Sooners in the College Football Playoff Semifinal. Is Jefferson good? He is, but everyone needs to calm down just a tad (if we can).
First of all, no one’s scoring four touchdowns every time out. No one plays defense in the BIg 12, but on the other hand, none of the ways the Big 12 plays defense is Jefferson’s fault either. You can only put your best effort out there versus the team that you’re lined up against. This man went off against the fourth-best team in college football, and there’s no way around giving him credit for that.
Now, let’s talk about the measurables. He’s consistent, and a rangy six-foot-two target who tips the scales at 192 pounds. In 2019, before the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, he snagged 102 receptions for 1,434 yards and 18 touchdowns, giving him 156 receptions, 2,309 receiving yards, and 24 career touchdowns for his 29-game career as a member of the LSU Tigers.
He’s the big-play guy that the Eagles seem to have been missing forever.
