    I've watched some tape on him and I cant say I'm impressed. He played for a sub-par school in a sub-par conference against sub-par competition. I know that gets thrown around a lot but there are reasons why he went undrafted. Yes, yes I know.. he played at the same school as Kapernik lol.

    Guy has some decent speed, but since Nevada runs the pistol offense it's tough to say whether this kid has a shot at making the team.

    Nothing he does jumps out at you, but hey, he's here now so best of luck to the guy. (I hope we never need for him to play)

    Lets let Pollard hit him a couple times and see if he gets up. Then we can judge.

    Honestly, they need to line up the entire roster and let them take 1-2 hits from Pollard as a test of will and physical endurance. All the puss$% exit field left lol.

    Jefferson doesn’t offer up the ideal speed that teams expect from their running backs. During the 2013 NFL Combine, the Nevada product clocked a 4.68 40-yard time and wasn’t spectacular in agility drills.

    His elusiveness is also an issue, as Jefferson consistently failed to make the first defender miss due to his lack of agility.

    Speed issues aside, Jefferson also struggles with technique as a runner. More often than not, he runs with a high pad level and doesn’t do a good job of avoid contacting or protecting the ball.


    :huh:

    A lot of that article looked to be rehashed from someone's draft bio.
