3 wide receivers the New Orleans Saints should consider drafting

2 of 3

Number Two: Justin Jefferson, Louisiana State

All New Orleans Saints fans should be familiar with this name.

LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson has had a stellar college career and looks to carry his success into the NFL. Jefferson, a 6-foot-3 192-pound receiver, spent three years with the Louisiana State Tigers.

In his three-year college career, Jefferson hauled in 165 receptions for 2,415 yards and 24 touchdowns while maintaining an average of 14.6 yards per reception. He certainly has a case to be a first-round draft pick.

In 2019, Jefferson led the NCAA in receptions with 111, ranked second in touchdown receptions with 18, and finished third with 1,540 receiving yards. Having Heisman trophy winner Joe Burrow throw to him likely helped those numbers as well.

Adding a top-three college wide receiver in the most important statistical categories to the Saints explosive offense would strike fear in the hearts of defenders. Jefferson has great hands and has exceptional playmaking abilities.

If Jefferson is still available at pick number 24, the Saints could opt to keep Jefferson in Louisiana for good.
