3. Justin Jefferson, Wide Receiver, LSU

This option may not be the most popular, but Justin Jefferson has true No. 1 potential at the next level. New England could use some help at the wide receiver position. He would form a long-term one-two punch with last year’s first-round pick N’Keal Harry for the Patriots.

Jefferson put together a massive season alongside expected No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow at LSU. He caught 111 passes for 1,540 yards and 18 touchdowns. Those numbers are impressive, even though Burrow is a legitimate superstar.

If the Patriots choose to go with a wide receiver that should definitely be there at No. 23, Jefferson would be a solid choice.
