He is one of the most talented wide receivers in the National Football League, but he does not have his starting quarterback on a list of the top five signal-callers in the NFL.
Justin Jefferson plays for the Minnesota Vikings.
As a former first-round pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Louisiana State University alumnus was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2022, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, and the NFL’s Offensive Player of the Year in 2022 for the Vikings. Jefferson has three consecutive 1,400+ yard receiving seasons, including a career-high 1,809 yards receiving on 128 catches (career high) in 2022.
According to Dov Kleiman, who reports NFL news, Jefferson has Jalen Hurts as a top-five quarterback in the pros.

Hurts, a former Alabama quarterback, is coming off a season where he led the Philadelphia Eagles to a Super Bowl berth.
He totaled 3,701 passing yards and 35 total touchdowns in 2022. Hurts secured a record-breaking contract, but he is happy to have all his teammates with him for a chance to win a Vince Lombardi Trophy.
