According to my good friend Justin Melo over at the The Draft Wire, the Chargers were one of a number of teams that met with former Ole Miss and Florida wide receiver Van Jefferson while at the NFL Combine.

Prior to the combine, Jefferson spent a week in late January at the Reese’s Senior Bowl where he competed with the country’s top senior talent. Jefferson was unfortunately unable to participate in any drills during the combine due to a jones fracture found in his foot during the medical testing early on in the week.

The former Gator played two seasons for Ole Miss prior to arriving in Gainsville before the 2017 season. In his first season at Florida he caught 35 passes for 503 yards and six touchdowns. As a senior in 2019, he caught a career-high 49 passes for 657 yards and another six touchdowns.
