Jeffery played in the SEC, the best conference in college football, against NFL-caliber players. There is no doubt that he will be able to make the transition to the pro game if he dedicates himself.

The 6-3, 216 pound, wide receiver will compete for position in the depth chart. Teamed up with Brandon Marshall, 6-4, 230 pounds, Jay Cutler will have two big targets to throw to.
