Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Flashed his talented skill-set during practices at the Shrine Game, showing off his large, athletic frame and proving to be an imposing target downfield and a physical blocker.

WEAKNESSES: Unpolished in several areas, and didn't show the expected progression throughout his college career. Lackluster college production. Shows limited strength at the point of attack and rarely gets involved in the passing game.

--Rob Rang

Player Overview

Jefferson signed with Rutgers as a highly regarded prep quarterback and remained at this position until halfway through camp of his redshirt freshman season (2009) before switching to tight end.

Jefferson offers a rare combination of size and athleticism and quickly ascended into a starting role, starting 10 games in his first year at the position, including the second game of the season.

While seeing action in all 25 of Rutgers' games from 2010-11, Jefferson had 22 catches during that time for 284 yards and a single touchdown. With head coach Greg Schiano off to the NFL in 2012, Jefferson still didn't provide much of an impact in the passing game, finishing with 20 receptions for 168 yards and a single score.

He finished his career with only 47 catches in 50 games, but scouts still see a big, athletic target whose best football may still lie ahead of him.

While Jefferson's upside is intriguing, he remains largely the same player now that he was when he first made the switch,

03/28/2013 - 2013 Rutgers Pro Day: D.C. Jefferson, TE (6-6 1/8, 262) - Jefferson ran the 40 in 5.00 and 4.97 seconds. He had a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-11 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.62 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.47 seconds. He did not do the bench press due to an injuy. Jefferson was also at the combine. He will be drafted by a team looking for a blocking tight end; he's a good receiver, but a much better blocker. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
