I suppose that's true, since you technically can't count to zero ... seriously, it's pretty evident that you are a huge fan of his, which is fine. I agree that he has size, hands, timing, hops, and a knack for aggresively high-pointing the ball. Comparing him to Calvin Johnson is insane, in my mind. So much of Johnson's game is the matchup problem he presents by having elite speed AND size. NOTHING about Jeffery's game says "speed" to me. He is caught from behind with alarming frequency. I also feel that there is absolutely no excuse for a receiver to be so soft-bodied. Even if it is not a result of laziness, it is still a HUGE concern. He is only going to get fatter as his body ages and his metabolism slows down. I wouldn't pick him in the first round if he was the last receiver left, but I am not a professional, I don't have the resources that the teams have, and I would trust that Trent had done his due diligence if he decided to bring Jeffery in.
This. He's slow and fat and supposedly has a bad attitude to boot. I wouldn't be shocked to see him picked late in the 2nd round/early 3rd round. He's looking less and less impressive as the offseason goes on, when he wasn't the focus of the offense he did fine, when teams were trying to shut him down, he was getting ably locked down by random CB's, chased down from behind by college linebackers, no thanks.
He's big and he's got great hands, that's about all. As I've said before, I'd rather take Fleener or Sanu in a heartbeat.
