Watch: Vikings rookie Justin Jefferson makes one-handed grab

Even Odell Beckham Jr. took notice of the catch.

If there's one thing we know about Minnesota Vikings rookie Justin Jefferson, it's that he can make plays. With 1,540 yards receiving during his final year at LSU, Jefferson exploded onto the scene thanks to a highlight reel of athletic grabs.

While preparing for the upcoming season, Jefferson added another catch to the reel, making a one-handed grab that he showed off on his Instagram account on Monday.

As the catch circulated throughout the internet, Cleveland Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took to the comments section to tell his fellow LSU alum "Stay outtttttaaaa my playboooook man," referencing his mind-breaking 2014 catch on Sunday Night Football.

The Vikings selected Jefferson with the 22nd overall pick in this year's NFL Draft and with Stefon Diggs gone to Buffalo, Minnesota will be relying on the rookie to make plenty of plays like this to keep them afloat in the NFC North.
