Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Jefferson appears to face light competition for the #3 role in Detroit’s backfield. Barring further additions, he’ll go up against undrafted rookie Dedrick Mills and 2020 undrafted free agent Mike Warren.
  • Jefferson arrived in Round 7 of this draft and is no roster lock himself.
  • He had a big true-freshman season in 2018 at Oregon State: 239 carries, 1,374 yards, 12 TDs rushing; 25 catches, 147 yards receiving.
  • Jefferson ranked 2nd among this class in final-year rushing yards per game (143.0).
  • His receiving work dipped to just 9 total catches each of his final 2 years.
  • Jefferson tested terribly at his pro day, including:
    • 34th percentile 40 time
    • 29th percentile broad
    • 13th percentile vertical
    • 4th percentile 3-cone drill

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Jefferson put some good stuff on tape in college and posted quality production. But his sub-standard speed and athleticism plus 7th-round draft capital don’t point to a player likely to accomplish much in the NFL.

The Lions drafted RB Jermar Jefferson in Round 7. Jefferson broke out as a true freshman with 239 carries for 1,380 yards (5.8 YPC) and 12 TDs. He added 25 catches that year, although he totaled only 18 receptions over his final 2 seasons. Jefferson’s rushing production dropped in 2019, partly because of foot and ankle injuries. Last year he rebounded on the ground to post 133-858-7 (6.5 YPC) in 6 games. The tape shows a runner with plus vision, but there is some concern over his athletic profile. Jefferson posted a 7.38-second 3-cone (8th percentile), a 4.38-second short shuttle (28th percentile), a 31-inch vertical (10th percentile) and a 115-inch broad jump (25th percentile). In Detroit, he could be battling Kerryon Johnson for a 2021 roster spot. With D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams -- at least -- ahead of him, we wouldn't bother with Jefferson in dynasty rookie drafts.
