Bio: Three-year starter who posted 25/4.5/3 as
Positives: Well-built run stuffer who plugs
the middle of the field. Explosive off the snap
with a great first step, can change direction and
relentless in pursuit of the play. Gets underneath
opponents wedging through blocks, collapses
outside defending the run, and plays with both
balance and body control. Tenacious, works hard
and displays good hand technique getting off
blocks. Good closing burst of speed.
height, handled at the point by a single blocker
or engulfed by opponents. Not light on his feet
and limited skills rushing the passer.
A defensive lineman whose quickness gives
him a decided advantage against opponents,
Jefferson is a competitor always working to
make the play. Has growth limitations, yet would
be effective as a three-technique lineman or in
a system that places him next to a wide-bodied
tackle. Will slide into the draft's second day, but
could very well turn out to be one of the better
bargains this April.
