Alshon Jeffery



I have said a couple of times on other blogs/fan posts on this site that my opinion is we should trade out of the first round. Granted, I will not be in the war room, nor am I a keen or astute talent evaluator, but since we have yet another late first round selection awaiting our team, I think trading back this year is the best move. I simply do not see a guy with elite talent coupled with major question marks falling to us this year, ala Jimmy Smith. To me, this appears to be a very blah first round, outside of Luck, RGIII, Richardson and Claiborne, but they will be long gone by the time we select (we don't need Luck or RGIII, anyway). I will say, though, that if we stick at 29, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery out of South Carolina could be there. He had a decent pro day today, showing good hands and much-needed dropped weight. The knock on Jeffery is that since he played at a heavy body weight in college (230-240lbs.), he doesn't appear to get much separation. However, he has decent hands (something we desperately need on the outside), and played in an offense that really wasn't known for its passing. Jeffery could be a decent option at #29, and does fill a need. When I watch his highlights, he almost (ALMOST!) looks like AJ Green, with his leaping ability to grab the football at its highest point. Because of Jeffery's past troubles with maintaining a proper body weight, Mayock and Co. at NFL Network seem to think heis an early secound round possibility. To me, though, this is really the only guy I can see taking at the bottom of round one, unless I am missing something or not thinking about another prospect. Thoughts?

The opinions posted here are those of the administrator of this blog and his loyal readers. They are in no way official comments from the team, and should not be misconstued as such, even though he thinks he could do just as well or even a better job!
