Former LSU receivers have mastered the art of the 1-handed catch

Justin Jefferson made Odell Beckham Jr. jealous with this crazy catch.

Justin Jefferson and Odell Beckham Jr. became great receivers playing for LSU football.

Jefferson is entering his rookie season with the Minnesota Vikings after winning a national championship with the LSU Tigers in January. Though he never won a national title during his time in Baton Rouge, Beckham has become a real superstar in this league because of his incredible pass-catching skills and his ability to just take 10-yard slants to the house.

Jefferson was seen practicing on his own accord and developed an amazing one-handed grab before falling in to the rough outside of the practice field. It was this kind of great catch that Beckham chimed in on Twitter.

LSU receivers have nailed the art of the one-handed catch.

2020 is really a big season for both former LSU standouts in the NFL. For Jefferson, he has the tall task of replacing Stefon Diggs as a top-tier receiver in the Vikings’ receiving corps. Adam Thielen is a superb player, but Minnesota expects huge things out of their rookie Bayou Bengal. The Vikings are one of a few of teams in the league in 2010 that can realistically win the Super Bowl.

As for Beckham, he must live up to lofty standards in the Cleveland Browns‘ revamped offense. Former Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski is now running the show. While it’ll be much more run than pass in Northeast Ohio, the Browns need Beckham to have a few more slant patterns spiraling off the right hand of quarterback Baker Mayfield to the house. Cleveland needs to win big.

Though Jefferson doesn’t need to have himself a life-changing highlight-reel one-handed catch as Beckham had for the New York Giants back in the day, that he does need to prove that he was worth the high selection the Vikings utilized on him the 2009 spring. There were quite a bit of great players on the 2019 LSU team and that he must show that he wasn’t just a product of the Tigers’ system.

If you grab the attention of Beckham with a one-handed catch, you did something good alright.
