Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery made a BOLD move in April’s draft when he selected South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffery in the second round, who was considered to be plummeting the draft board because of questionable intangibles. He was believed by many, including myself, to be a classic boom or bust prospect.
However, since being drafted Jeffery has been all boom and no bust during training camp and the preseason. Coaches and players have raved about his performances, jumping giddily like schoolboys who have just been told it’s recess, and now I’m here to do the same. I haven’t been to the Bears training camp (it would be quite the drive/flight) but I’ve watched all of the second-round pick’s preseason games,and he’s been very good.
