In one of the most loaded wide receiver classes in quite some time, Justin Jefferson is still arguably the most productive wideout in the group. He racked up 1,540 receiving yards on 111 receptions while adding 18 touchdowns through the air.

That kind of elite-level production should have plenty of teams vying for his services this offseason. With that in mind, let's take a look at some expert predictions for Jefferson's landing spot in the 2020 NFL Draft.
