That was evident by what he did to Nebraska matched up against a 1st round projected CB. He's exactly the type of WR we need in this offense.
I think his size mismatch helped him out against Dennard. Dennard is probably going to measure in below 5-10, while Jeffery is going to weigh in close to 6-4. He's got about 6-7 inches of height and 25 pounds on Dennard. I'm not super shocked he did well.
I worry about Alshon. He averaged only about 58 yards per game this season, which included three separate disappearing acts for three straight weeks against SEC teams for 17, 19, and 17 yard efforts against Tennesee, Arkansas, and Florida, respectively. Also, only 2 catches for 34 yards against Vanderbilt and CB Casey Hayward. Last year was terrific statistically. What happened in 2011?
Rewatch the games dude. Jeffery was dealing with alot of issues with his QB, health and his other receivers werent that much of a compliment to him or the run game. Which could also be the QB and ol fun n gun dicking up the offense. You put Jeffery on the field with our other weapons and a year with our trainer, coaching and offense this kid will be a stud. Its all moot now tho cause this kid wont be around where this team is picking anyway.
Everyone needs to resign themselves to the idea that if we want Floyd or Jeffery we will be trading up for them. Even if Jeffery runs a low 4.5 he is still a top 20 pick and Floyd's athleticism will easily keep him in front of Jeffery on nearly every teams' board.
I don't agree. Many believe Alshon will not get picked until the second round. Think about Sidney Rice, another SC product who had over 1400 yards and 14 TDs as a senior. He was picked 44th overall.
It is a large debate who is the 4th or 5th best receiver in this draft. Some say it's Sanu, some say Jeffery, some say Randle. Not saying Jeffery can't go early, but this "top 20 lock" thing I cannot get behind. He is anything but
a lock at this point for even going in the 1st round to begin with.
Now as for my opinion on his talent? I'm not a huge fan, but as I've said before, if we take him I trust this staff and will believe that he can be successful here. He has great hands, so at the very least, he upgrades the WRs in the hands department.
