Former LSU QB Jordan Jefferson ranked lowest-rated player at NFL Combine.

 Jordan Jefferson probably isn't too proud of his latest achievement. The former LSU quarterback was the lowest rated player who participated in the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine. He was given a 44 rating on an 100 point scale. He ranked 315 out of 315 players.

"Jefferson has serious mechanical issues that affect his play," said. "He lacks awareness in the pocket and tries to rely on his scrambling ability too heavily, causing him to take bad sacks. There are many fundamental elements of Jefferson's game that need work before he would be ready to run an NFL offense."

Coming on the heels of a Jefferson's disastrous performance in LSU's BSC title game loss to Alabama, and questions over whether or not he deserved to even be invited to the NFL Combine, this is seriously bad news. It certainly will not help Jefferson's chances in the 2012 NFL Draft, which were most probably tenuous in the first place.

UPDATE: Stewart Mandel has tweeted the following:

There's a chance Jefferson did better than his grading, but don't hold your breath.
