Scouting Report: Jefferson is a smooth wide receiver. He is very advanced as a route-runner. He sets up defenders, he sinks his hips in and out of breaks, and he knows how to create separation. He is not a burner when tested, but he plays fast enough -- as fast as he needs to.
He is still thin and he needs to add weight to his frame -- that will come. He is a natural receiver. He catches the ball with his hands away from his body and his biggest strength may his receiving ability. Jefferson is a very dependable, reliable receiver.
Overall, Jefferson is a receiver who is well educated on how to play wide receiver. His father (Shawn) played at the highest level, so Van has learned a lot along the way. He is long, he can high-point the ball, and he has elite body control. He will be able to play outside or inside receiver on the next level.
