I think Streeter and Quick have him beat.
Quick has a 34" arm length, Streeter is almost at 35"
Quick is about 81" in wingspan, Streeter I think is almost 81 and Sanu actually came out extremely impressive at 78 inches. Sanu all-around had pretty good measurements.
Quick is not in Jeffery's league as a receiver though, of course. If Jeffery runs a sub 4.55, he'll likely be a Top-25 lock. Jeffery's only issue is that his long-striding nature make him less of a threat on double-moves because he rounds off his routes -- typical of a receiver trying not to lose speed getting upfield. However, Jeffery might have the best hands in this draft.
I will be interested in his leaping ability. If he puts up something good there, that'll show in addition to his height, he can outleap defenders too.
Just watched youtube highlights of the bowl game. I think Jeffery will easily run a 4.55, on the one play he knew for sure he was going deep he gained about 3 yards of separation on Dennard, only reason Dennard caught up was because Jeffery randomly turned and ran for the far pylon rather then running straight for the endzone.
That weight drop absolutely shocked me, 6-3 216?!?!? After seeing that I'd honestly be surprised if he wasn't one of the more in shape big WRs in Indy. The weight drop is a great double edged sword for him, shows his work ethic is amazing and shows how quickly he can get in football shape. The bowl game wasn't even a full months ago and he dropped 18+ pounds(listed weight was 233).
He went from the assumed biggest (as far as weight) receiver in the draft to one of the most fit. All of the following others weighed in heavier:
Michael Floyd, Notre Dame - 6-3 220
Juron Criner, Arizona - 6-3 224
Gerell Robinson, Arizona St. - 6-3 227
Dwight Jones, North Carolina - 6-3 230
Jeff Fuller, Texas A&M - 6-4 223
Brian Quick, Appalachian St. - 6-4 220
Rishard Matthews, Nevada - 6-0 217
Can't really call him fat anymore.
