ESPN Fantasy Projection: Minnesota used the 22nd pick of April's draft to select Jefferson ' the de facto replacement for Stefon Diggs. Jefferson is 6-foot-1, 202 pounds with outstanding ball skills and contested-catch ability. The former LSU Tiger also has decent wheels (4.43 40), though he doesn't stand out in terms of perimeter separation or against press, which helps explain why he aligned in the slot 90% of the time in 2019. With only Adam Thielen ahead of him on the depth chart, Jefferson won't be short of playing time as a rookie, which isn't new for the player who paced the FBS with 111 receptions in 2019. Jefferson's 83% catch rate and 18 touchdowns were best in this year's rookie class. Jefferson's short-term upside will be limited by Minnesota's run-heavy offense, but he's still worth a late-round pick.
