NEW YORK -- The Chicago Bears can't pick wide receivers very well. They can't sign them very well either. So they keep trying.
Jeffery looked like a potential top-10 pick entering his senior year, but he struggled with his weight. NFL Films' Greg Cosell notes that Jeffrey "played slow" as a senior and definitely is a "projection" player. That sounds like a Bears pick.
"We feel that Alshon has the best hands in the draft, we feel that he's the best at adjusting to the ball, we feel that he's the best sideline and end zone catcher in the draft," Bears general manager Phil Emery said, according to The Associated Press. "He's dynamic with the ball in his hands. He's a big man, he's strong, he's tough. He doesn't go down without a fight."
