“Van has been really good, man,” Goff said, per the team’s official transcript. “He’s been really good. I say that cautiously because you never want these young guys to get too far ahead of themselves (laughs). But he’s been really impressive and done a good job. It reminds me a lot of when Cooper was a rookie, and he was just so far ahead of where a rookie kind of should be. He’s done a great job. He’s really picking things up fast. He’s obviously extremely athletic, but I think his ability to be able to pick up the offense mentally and understand the little intricacies of it has been really impressive, and I’m excited to play with him.”
NFL Network’s Steve Wyche reported that Jefferson has been a “darling of training camp” thus far.
A lot of rookies struggle out of the gate with the changing from college to pros. Goff believes Jefferson could contribute right away, given the offense he played in at Florida.
