Rotoworld.com just reported a shocking rumor about WR Alshon Jeffery that came out today. The rumor is that Jeffery has eaten himself up to 249 pounds (TE weight), and in his pre-draft workouts is running in the high 4.8's in his 40 times (slow for a TE, career killing for a WR). Sporting News' Russ Lande was quoted as saying that Jeffery "Lacks explosivness and top end speed".
I hope this rumor isn't true, for his sake, and the sake of his NFL career, but we will have to see what happens at the Combine. However, if Jeffery should decide not to run, or even workout at the Combine, that might be conformation. If the rumor is true, then it's probably too late for him to get in shape for the Combine, so lets hope he can get himself together by his Pro Day. Of course we all hope this rumor will be proved untrue.
