Bears Take S Carolina WR Alshon Jeffery in Round Two

The Bears have added a playmaker with their second round pick, as Friday night the team took WR Alshon Jeffery from S Carolina.

Here’s a Scouting Report on Jeffery:

Jeffery’s junior campaign at South Carolina was a disappointment, in part because of well-documented quarterback troubles (Stephen Garcia got kicked off the team) and defenses focused on him after Marcus Lattimore was lost for the season. In 13 games, Jeffery caught 49 passes for 762 yards and eight touchdowns. However, he found the endzone in each of his last four games and had four receptions for 148 yards and a score in a bowl win over Nebraska. The numbers were simply modest compared to his ridiculous sophomore season. In 2010 he racked up 1517 yards and nine touchdowns on 88 catches.

Jeffery is a physical specimen at 6’4” and 229 pounds. He runs around a 4.50 in the 40-yard dash and has been clocked as fast as 4.46 from that distance. His combination of size and speed is without a doubt NFL material, which is why he left early. Red flags, though, have started to creep up. He disappointed at the NFL combine and scouts are becoming concerned with Jeffery’s work ethic and potential weight issues. Once thought to be the second receiver off the board in the first round behind Justin Blackmon, Jeffery has seen his stock slide. Look for him to be selected late in the second round or early in the third later this month.

    Awesome 2nd pick!! Alshon is a stud. The combo of Alshon and Marshall is legit. Both have good height and size and play physical with great hands. Plus this allows Hester to play a more natural slot reciever position which will make him more dangerous expecially with them blocking for him. We went from having a piss poor recieving corps to having one of the top ten or better in the past 3 months. !!Emery!!
