Detroit Lions rookie RB Jermar Jefferson has extremely interesting comparison

When the Detroit Lions selected former Oregon State running back Jermar Jefferson in the seventh round of the 2021 NFL Draft, not too many people said anything one way or the other. After all, Jefferson was one of the last players to be selected in the draft, which means expectations are very low.

Fast forward to the present and Jefferson has been getting quite a bit of love (especially after Kerryon Johnson was cut) as a player who very well could have a big role for the Lions during the 2021 season.

Now, a very interesting comparison for Jefferson has emerged.

According to, the best comparison for Jefferson is Jamaal Williams, who just so happens to be on the Lions roster.

Nation, what do you think of this comparison?
