Former LSU cornerback a new Houston Texans rookie Derek Stingley Jr. did a Q&A recently with The Spun and revealed which of his former teammates was tougher to guard in practice: Justin Jefferson or Ja’Marr Chase?
quote:

The Spun: Going off that, who was tougher to guard against in practice when you were at LSU: Justin Jefferson or Ja’Marr Chase?

Stingley Jr.: Ja’Marr was tougher to guard just because he was stronger but Justin was still really good. He was right there with him.
Full Q&A here.

Before I read it, I was just getting ready to say that Chase would be the tougher match-up because of how strong he is. Lol Chase is an animal with how strong he is, he'll throw you off of him like a small dog bothering a big dog. Lol Just unbelievably strong, fast, and good route runner.

Even as a freshman, his ability to get wide open and catch everything thrown his way really stood out. And physically tough, would often jump up after some really tough hits. Just a really good football player

I think that this is one of those things where other DBs might or might not agree. I think that Chase is faster and (like Stingley said) stronger, but I think that JJ makes harder cuts and runs better routes.

Chase is faster, stronger and a better leaper. JJ is a little taller and heavier and runs harder into and out of cuts. They are different and complimentary to each other.

Ace Midnight - I don't know if Jefferson is heavier, Chase has the shorter, stronger, and more compact frame which is why he's so strong. He's just built sturdier than Jefferson who has a longer frame at 6'3". But I agree with you in that Jefferson runs better routes.

I'm sorry Ace, that comment was intended for the original poster GOP Tiger, I read it wrong and thought it was you that made the comment. Smh

Jefferson does not have the physical gifts of Chase, but he works really, really hard at being a wide receiver. And it shows.

Jefferson has surprised many people including myself, a former ballplayer I thought would just turn out to be average at LSU as a player. Instead, he has turned into a bonafide star NFL WR which is surprising to me. He started his LSU career slow, but closed with a BANG! Out of all 3 brothers, he would have probably been the least favorite to succeed, instead, he's the one that makes it for the family. That's a nice story, although being a brother that grew up with 2 other brothers playing sports, I know that there has to be some jealousy. Probably, Jordan if I had to guess, but just be happy that Lil bro made it for the family.

DeVonta Smith is the correct answer here.

Bama doesn’t have a Devonta Smith and will never get one again so good luck beating us these coming years and good luck beating your 2 fathers Jimbo and Kirby

Yeah…as long as DeVonta’s coaching staff can distract Stingley on the snap count. And a cheap arse bomb at the end of a game when nobody gave a shite
