2020 NFL Mock Draft: Justin Jefferson Deserves More Respect
Justin Jefferson is not getting enough attention, according to at least one football expert.
Recently, NBC Sports insider Chris Simms named Jefferson as the one wide receiver in the looming 2020 NFL Draft who was not getting enough love.

Damn why isn’t there more buzz around this guy. To me, he’s a faster version of Michael Thomas. Consistency, great route running, plays all over the field @LSUfootball @JJettas2 #NFLDraft pic.twitter.com/Rc2YwqnTgN

“Can someone explain to me why this guy is not getting more respect? All I see from him are big-time football plays,” Simms said.
“To me, he’s a faster version of Michael Thomas coming out of Ohio State. He catches everything, has great hands and can work the middle of the field. I think for some reason Justin Jefferson is being overlooked in a big way.”
Last year Jefferson recorded 1,540 yards and 18 scores on 111 catches.
