In his rookie season, he broke the record for most receiving yards by a rookie by finishing with 1,400 yards.
He also had seven touchdowns and averaged 15.9 yards per reception.
Last season, he proved that the sophomore slump is a fluke after finishing with 1,616 yards and ten touchdowns.
Jefferson also played all 17 games last season and averaged 15 yards per catch.
Those numbers made him a part of the Second-Team All-Pro in each of his first two seasons.
He is also a two-time Pro Bowler and a member of the 2020 All-Rookie Team by the Pro Football Writers Association.
Now that he has established himself as one of the top wideouts in the league, he would like to emulate his fellow LSU alumnus.

In that video, Jefferson is seen imitating the famous one-handed catch by Odell Beckham Jr.
The current free agent is like a big brother because he attended LSU from 2011 to 2013.
Meanwhile, Jefferson played for the Tigers from 2017 to 2019.
During his stay at Baton Rouge, Jefferson won a national championship and was Second-Team All-SEC.
The Next Step For Jefferson
Like Beckham, Jefferson would like to reach the playoffs and hopefully win a Super Bowl.
Despite his impressive numbers, the postseason is something he would like to reach.
He may do that this season with the help of new head coach Kevin O’Connell.
Last year, O’Connell helped the Los Angeles Rams win Super Bowl LVI as their offensive coordinator.
Therefore, he knows what it takes to help Jefferson and the Vikings take that leap into contender status.
