They used the first round pick they received from Buffalo and used it to select LSU's Justin Jefferson. The rest was history, literally, after that.

Facing the New England Patriots on Thanksgiving, Jefferson made a huge catch on a deep pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins.

In the process, Jefferson passed Vikings legend Randy Moss and current free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. for the most receiving yards recorded through three seasons.

Jefferson had the primetime Thanksgiving game audience in awe, including Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, who said the receiver was "ridiculous."

Jefferson has shown many times in his young career that he is one of the best receivers in the game. He backed it into the national spotlight by breaking an impressive record.
