Alshon is a freak and we'd be lucky to get him. Or Adams or Wright.
Bit you chose the wrong prospect to make up sh*t about....no idea what you have against him, but he would be a great pick for us
He reminds me of better version of Tori Gurley a big slowish possession WR that ended up undrafted and on someone's taxi squad. Is Jeffery the exact same as Gurley no. But he's overrated right now.
Larry Fitzgerald does not have amazing straight line speed either
Comparing Tori Gurley and Alshon Jeffrey is an absolute joke....WTF?!?!
One was a nice player in the SEC , one was a dominant player in the SEC from day one.....
Please tell me you're joking
"he was chippy all game including face mask and other fouls"
THIS IS 100% MADE UP, FALSE, A LIE
Well now that Bit sh*tted up another thread allow me to get it back on track
There are questions to either of the receivers on display
Floyd seems to be the more natural receiver. Watch how he adjusts to the ball and makes the catch with nothing but his HANDS. No cradling with the body. No chest grabs. He's all hands.
The issue you have with him is his straight-line speed and his questionable character. We won't be able to tell until we get his forty time but some assume he could be the slowest of the possible first round receivers.
The next is Jeffery. He's another big receiver who seems to have more big play ability. Like Floyd, he's great at catching the pass away from his body with nothing but his hands. You have to wonder if he's as natural at adjusting to the ball as much as Floyd does. With an erratic passer like Sanchez its important.
The concerns with Jeffery have less to do with off the field issues than on the field issues. The long strider that Jeffery is, will he be able to work on his route running? His route running now most would point to as acceptable to boarder line poor. You also have to worry about his weight. It's been noted that he's come into seasons overweight and out of shape. Will he eat his way out of the league?
Stop being a douche and stick to the fcking topic.
let's take all the emotion out of this discussion for a second.
Alshon Jeffery is a possession WR. He excels at Jump balls in the end zone. He's got superior size and strength. He lacks gamebreaking speed. He will be lucky to break 4.5 40-yard dash. He doesn't get great seperation. he's basically a young Plexico.
They can find players like that, in fact they already have that player in plexico. they don't have to use a 1st rounder on him. He doesn't take the top off the defense like a true deep threat. the player from Baylor, Kendall Wright is more of a deep threat than Jeffery.
they don't need another Plexico they need a Victor Cruz that can gamebreak. And you don't have to use 1st rounders on those players. and the way the Qb Sanchez is developing, I don't know that a first round WR will ever live up to expectation.
I would sign up for a young plaxico burress in his prime in a heartbeat....all pro man
I just disagree that plaxico is a good comparison.....
I honestly think Larry Fitzgerald is a very good comparison....Alshon has elite body control and snags everything around him...
Alshon can make crazy catches and adjust his body at any moment while high in the air
I can't explain it to well, but maybe someone can help me here.......the way fitzgerald catches and adjusts so well to jump balls
Alshon Jeffery is not like Larry Fitzgerald. Jeffrey had an amazing 2010 but failed to go over 100 yards receiving in all of 2011, until the bowl game.After his sophomore season, Fitzgerald was recognized as the best player in the NCAA with the 2003 Walter Camp Award and the Touchdown Club of Columbus's Chic Harley Award, and as the best wide receiver in college football with the 2003 Biletnikoff Award and the Touchdown Club's Paul Warfield Award. He was also a unanimous 2003 All-America selection and a runner-up for the prestigious Heisman Trophy, given to the most outstanding player in college football; Oklahoma's Jason White won that award by a relatively slim margin.
In just 26 games with the Panthers, Fitzgerald caught 161 passes for 2,677 yards and set a new Pitt record with 34 receiving touchdowns. He was the first player in school history with back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons, and his 14 games with at least 100 yards receiving broke Antonio Bryant's previous all-time Panthers record of 13.
Fitzgerald also holds an NCAA record with at least one touchdown catch in 18 straight games.
People realize that scouts have HUGE concerns about Jeffery eating himself out of the league right?! This guy is in bad shape and it is a huge red flag regarding him....
And in terms of Jeffrey and not being considered the best WR in football....there is no way Jeffrey was going to be able to pump up his stats playing in that SEC offense with an atrocity of a QB situation. Switch Jeffrey and Blackmon, and Jeffrey's numbers balloon up.
