2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina

Jeffery's junior campaign at South Carolina was a disappointment, in part because of well-documented quarterback troubles (Stephen Garcia got kicked off the team) and defenses focused on him after Marcus Lattimore was lost for the season. In 13 games, Jeffery caught 49 passes for 762 yards and eight touchdowns. However, he found the endzone in each of his last four games and had four receptions for 148 yards and a score in a bowl win over Nebraska. The numbers were simply modest compared to his ridiculous sophomore season. In 2010 he racked up 1517 yards and nine touchdowns on 88 catches.

Jeffery is a physical specimen at 6'4'' and 229 pounds. He runs around a 4.50 in the 40-yard dash and has been clocked as fast as 4.46 from that distance. His combination of size and speed is without a doubt NFL material, which is why he left early. Red flags, though, have started to creep up. He disappointed at the NFL combine and scouts are becoming concerned with Jeffery's work ethic and potential weight issues. Once thought to be the second receiver off the board in the first round behind Justin Blackmon, Jeffery has seen his stock slide. Look for him to be selected late in the second round or early in the third later this month.

Prediction: 1st Round

Prediction: Late 1st / Early 2nd

Came into combine and didn't do anything but get sized up and even failed that part. Listed even on this site as 6'3" but came in UNDER 6'2". He was 6'1" and some change. Still the red flag talk about that ejection in the bowl I don't see as being a problem, the CB and him were getting physical all game and the CB finally took an outright swing at Jeffery. He fought back but never threw an actual punch and in my opinion didn't deserve to get booted.
