PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Jordan Jefferson is the quarterback of the Pittsburgh Power but he spent his collegiate playing career at Lousiana State University.

Jefferson stopped by The Fan studios to talk with Andrew Fillipponi about college memories, both positive and negative, as well as the Steelers he knows, the transition from the outdoor game to the indoor game, and the changing NFL game.

Jefferson is confident that former LSU teammate cornerback Tyrann Mathieu will have a successful NFL career because “he has great instincts and works hard.” This is a man who was up for a Heisman as a defender, which is a tough thing to do.

The Honey Badger has the heart to play on the outside. At the next level a team will be able to take advantage of his ability to get around the ball and make plays. According to Jefferson, Mathieu is definitely on the level of other recent talented corners to come out of his alma mater, just a little smaller.

As to the off-field troubles that Mathieu has struggled with, “nobody knows what he was going through.”

Jefferson is confident that Mathieu has learned from the situation.
