D.C. Jefferson wants to prove he’s more than a blocking tight end.
After the East-West game, Jefferson said he “caught [scouts] off guard” by “making catches they didn’t think I could make” (via www.nj.com).
After Jefferson’s solid performance at the Shrine game raised his draft stock, he injured himself early at the NFL Combine (according to USA Today). That injury might cancel out the bump he received in draft projections after the East-West game.
Jefferson should be a solid third-day pick. He has a lot to offer, and a team that gambles on him being more than a blocking tight end could be rewarded handsomely.
