Apparently he was recently tested again and he came out at 8.4% which is pretty ideal.
He's just a bigger short guy but regardless the body fat won't cut it.... I'd be worried about someone's weight that fluctuates like that. Said this about Jeffery but let's say after the offseason he let's himself go... gains 10-15 pounds... takes him awhile to get back into shape... then the next offseason he gains 20 pounds... takes him even longer to get back into shape. nothing against him but to me that says something about your passion for the game and your motivation.... it's his job as a professional athlete (especially at that position) to stay in shape. Just my opinion...
I don't know, I'd be cool with it. I know right after the season eneded for us and the draft process started. We were kidding ourselves if we thought he was going to drop to #30. I think he can be similar to Steve Smith, and I'll take that any day. He cant seperate? Yet on film he always burns guys(double teams) deep. I'd be more worried about if Alex can throw the ball that far, obviously RGIII had no problem.
