Vikings' newest WR Justin Jefferson caught 92.3% of his contested targets in 2019.

By far the best in college football.

Those Jefferson stats are insanely good. I may be underrating him.

well, he's certainly not lacking confidence! This reminds me of Moss after being drafted #21 overall in 1998 :smilevike:

My draft magazine compared him to Michael Thomas. With those stats it's easy to see why.

He's way faster than Thomas, but not as big.

Yeah I'd like to see him bulk up a little more.

Be careful what you wish for. He might be less effective if he bulks up. Randy Moss never bulked up. He's not skinny. That's Dantzler.

Yeah Dantzler is a twig but given how he played vs. LSU, I wouldnt be surprised one bit if he ends up being just as good or better than Gladney and I love Gladney. But I think I was even more excited about the Dantzler pick

I'm high on Dantzler also. However, him being ridiculously skinny is just an observation. No implication of what it means for his success. He is actually skinnier than any NFL player I can think of.

Euphemism for skinny :lol: .
Actually wiry is skinny, but strong. It doesn't matter. He's good.
