Bears Select Alshon Jeffery

The Bears have added the complementary weapon for Brandon Marshall they desired. Big man. Terrific red zone threat for Cutler. Bears will have an exciting offense this year, folks. Enjoy the video.

  • NUMBER 1...
    Love the pick..not sure if was worth the 5th and he probably would have still been there @50. Gonna look good in a bear uni and across from B Marsh!!
    GO BEARS!!

  • Thank you Phil Emery, finally another "go up and get it" guy.

  • how about some oline emery? anyone? Bueller?

    Guess we're going to address the Dbackfield next year. I damn well hope we stay healthy in the middle and on the corners this year. a little scary maings.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Think we're planning on scoring a lot :-)

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'm hoping Molk in the 4th. We don't have a solid backup for Garza, and he'd be better back at guard anyway. Then we could think about having Lance at RT permanently and put Gabe in as LT. Likery?

  • jesus, what's up with the out of place posts? common Jimmy.

    btw, shady... was in the blackbox a little while ago. Fucken a maing, can't take one step outside of you hear a pop and you're respawing. fucking cuntbag snipers.

  • Clearly Bears had Hill and Jeffery targeted. As soon as one came off the board they jumped up to secure the other. I like Phil Emery.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    Yeah, Emery must have felt there was some drop off after those two guys. Sorta feel bad for Randle in the green room, odn't want to see him go to a division rival.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Randle shouldn't have been silly enough to come along to the draft. Considering at best he was considered in the last 5-6 picks in the 1st he really shouldn't have went.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    Jeff, these 3+ posts in a day are brutal for continuity.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Keep em coming fresh for the draft, and then proceed to regular threads......

  • In reply to OsosFan:

    no man.... you ain't a reg. Don't have to deal with the shit on an every-day basis.

    How about this... leave one a day for the draft and change the regular ones every 3-5 days.

    Fuck me.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I do read the blog everyday. I'm addicted! Thanks to you and many of the other regulars insightful comments and knowledge . Any who, Da Bears!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Greetings and salutations to all Bear fan posters, this blog is too much like an Appalachian mountain family already. Honeybear mightn't appear. Where are you Honeybear ? Coochie coochie coo!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Until/unless the blog is threaded, more posts from Jeff keep the comment number down to a reasonable number - how can you find the 5 new comments among 500?

  • In reply to Jokey:

    The blog breaks at 600 too.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    I like the pick but feel like Randle would have been the Boldin to our Fitz.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    i can't remember
    a g.m.
    generating this much excitement
    for me
    ever
    he has a chemical magnetism right now
    i am so happy he is ours

    the best move talent wise
    in our org. in a long time
    emery the man
    with a plan
    nobody expected

    thanks meatoga
    for getting the gods to
    eliminate the deadwood J.A.

  • There was a small run at OTs, but those who still want Oline

    OT Nate Potters
    OT Zebrie Sanders

    Still there.

  • Pack make a good pick

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    Jerel Worthy fml

  • In reply to Shady:

    chucky said he was lazy and fat. not a lot of effort.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Pack drafted two talented, yet questionable players

    LB Perry
    DT Worthy

    It's like they hired JA as an advisor, "Yes, but can he jump out of a pool?"

  • hahahahahahaha... I wish.

  • hahahahahaa

  • There are youtube videos of Worthy Juggling cats and Perry riding a unicycle in a clown costume. They may be channelling Angela.

  • Well, he doesn't look like he's going to outrun too many DBs but does seem to catch anything remotely near him. Anyone have numbers on his drop/catch ratio?

  • Re-post.

    There's actually quite a few CBs still out there.

    CB Tru Johnson, like Shady said

    CB Casey Hayward
    CB Josh Robinson

    I'm now becoming optimistic a solid one could fall to us in the 3rd (Pats made a huge reach).

  • I'm very surprised they made that pick. They have young CBs (I-Das Rowling, McCourtney to name a few). Their secondary is very young. Still a weakness for them imo.

  • From PFW:

    Positives:
    Outstanding size and arm length to climb the ladder and outmuscle defensive backs. Attacks the ball in the air and can pluck it away from a crowd. Offers a big target and wide catching radius and snatches the ball out of the air. Takes long, sneaky strides once he gets going and eats ground downfield. Good body control. Can separate with body length at the last second. Makes difficult catches look easy and excels making one-handed snags. Makes some subtle cuts and plays faster with the ball in his hands. Good run strength. Is physically tough and will play through injuries. Outstanding career production. Came through in the clutch and was a go-to guy. Strong red-zone producer.

    Negatives:
    Soft-bodied and smooth-muscled. Takes time to roll off the line and cannot accelerate instantly — could struggle beating physical press coverage. Marginal release quickness — at times looks like he is running in sand. Often needs to push off to separate and most catches are contested. Average explosion and leaping ability. Cannot sink his hips and pop out of breaks — gathers to cut. Not a precise route runner — too often drifts — and ran a simple route tree in an unsophisticated offense that has not translated well to the pro game for receiving talent. Concentration wanes — makes some easy, can-of-corn drops (see Mississippi State). Inconsistent effort as a blocker. Not elusive after the catch. Weight has fluctuated throughout his career and has had a tendency to balloon — played 15-20 pounds heavier than he showed at the Combine. Work habits and discipline can improve. Did not come across well in team interviews.

    Summary:
    One of the best receivers in the draft playing the ball in the air, Jeffery’s production dipped as a junior when he was noticeably out of shape with an inconsistent, revolving door at the quarterback position. Cut bad weight prior to the Combine but still must show that he can be more than a jump-ball, possession receiver and can separate vs. NFL defensive backs. Must figure out the meaning of hard work to produce in the pros.

  • In reply to Shady:

    i been thinkin
    that because emery was
    so hard on the midshipmen
    while running the training room
    he knows a thing or 2
    about setting up a first class program
    regarding training
    the knock on shea is
    he only had 19 reps
    at the combine
    that is a fix
    emery felt he could accomplish
    i also read that alshon
    might not be that focused
    on the training aspect
    at navy they called emery
    Satan in the training room
    i think that roy w shit
    will not fly at halas hall
    during emery's tenure
    this is getting exciting

  • In reply to Shady:

    thaaaaat doesn't sound that great.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    You're not excited? Look at these nipples!

  • In reply to Shady:

    Yes, I am very excited... just tough to throw to anyone when you're on your back with a broken collarbone maing.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Not comparing anyone, but I'd like to see what some of these pro evaluators had to say were the negatives on some All-Pro receivers. I'm really curious what was said about Tom Brady. Dre Brees and Aaron Rogers bad traits...

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    Brees

    Positives... Touch passer with the ability to read and diagnose defensive coverages...Confident leader who knows how to take command in the huddle...Very tough and mobile moving around in the pocket...Has a quick setup and is very effective throwing on the move...Throws across his body with great consistency...Hits receivers in stride and improvises his throws in order to make a completion...Puts good zip behind the short and mid-range passes...Shows good judgement and keen field vision...Has a take-charge attitude and is very cool under pressure...Hits receivers in motion with impressive velocity...Has superb pocket presence and uses all of his offensive weapons in order to move the chains...Has solid body mechanics and quickness moving away from center... Elusive scrambler with the body control to avoid the rush.

    Negatives... Plays in the spread offense, taking the bulk of his snaps from the shotgun... Tends to side-arm his passes going deep...Lacks accuracy and touch on his long throws... Seems more comfortable in the short/intermediate passing attack...Does not possess the ideal height you look for in a pro passer, though his ability to scan the field helps him compensate in this area...Will improvise and run when the passing lanes are clogged, but tends to run through defenders rather than trying to avoid them to prevent unnecessary punishment.

  • In reply to tobijohn:

    Brady:

    Notes: Baseball catcher and football quarterback in high school who was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 18th round of the June 1995 baseball draft. Opted for football and redshirted at Michigan in '95. Saw limited action in '96 and '97 and started the past two years. Completed 3 of 5 passes for 26 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in '96, 12-15-103-0-0 in '97, 214-350-2,636-15-12 in '98 and 180-295-2,216-16-6 in '99, when he often shared time with super sophomore Drew Henson. Went all the way against Alabama in the Orange Bowl and completed 34-46-369-4. Unlike many Michigan quarterbacks, Brady is a pocket-type passer who plays best in a dropback-type system.

    Tom Brady Positives: Good height to see the field. Very poised and composed. Smart and alert. Can read coverages. Good accuracy and touch. Produces in big spots and in big games. Has some Brian Griese in him and is a gamer. Generally plays within himself. Team leader.

    Negatives: Poor build. Very skinny and narrow. Ended the '99 season weighing 195 pounds and still looks like a rail at 211. Looks a little frail and lacks great physical stature and strength. Can get pushed down more easily than you'd like. Lacks mobility and ability to avoid the rush. Lacks a really strong arm. Can't drive the ball down the field and does not throw a really tight spiral. System-type player who can get exposed if he must ad-lib and do things on his own.

    Summary: Is not what you're looking for in terms of physical stature, strength, arm strength and mobility, but he has the intangibles and production and showed great Griese-like improvement as a senior. Could make it in the right system but will not be for everyone.

  • In reply to DYLbear23:

    That was great. Thanks.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Yeah, post Cutler and Forte

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Jeffery had an outstanding sophomore season at South Carolina where he had 88 receptions, 1,517 yards, and 9 td catches. His production fell off in 2011, mainly due to inconsistent play from the QB and their improved running game. His overall speed had been in question until he ran a good time in the 40 yard dash at his pro day, which may help him get drafted in the late 1st round. He should definitely be drafted early in the 2nd round. Overall, Jeffery has the skillset to be a good compliment receiver right out of the gate. He will be valuable in the red zone because of his length, good hands, and leaping ability. He can turn into a solid number one receiver in time with better techniques in route running and the use of his hands to get off of the line faster

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    Alshon will be okay. Probably better than ok. In any event, a big upgrade over Williams.

    Marshall, Jeffery, and Bennett. Not bad, not bad at all.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I wonder how his negatives stack up against Hesters?

  • E-TRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! as I have said before this boy is methodical in his ways...knows what the fuck he wants in a player and digs deep to get it...

    WE FINALLY HAVE A FUCKING REAL GM!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • red zone gangbangs predicted

  • "ZachZaidman profile

    ZachZaidman #Bears were 6th in NFL in scoring at the time @JayCutler6 got hurt last year. That was without Marshall, Jeffery and Carimi. "

    Not to mention, we now have Bush and added by subtracting Martz and Roy.

  • the depth puts my mind at ease
    and will keep the fear
    out of the equation

  • Except we don't have our starting RB, and that Matt ers.

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    We always have a starting RB. There's always someone ready to go in for the Bears. Always. People got carried away on the Forte train, lost their damn senses. He was our offense last year. Not this year.

    We don't know how things have progressed behind the scenes. I don't think they'll trade him, but if his dick agent is not willing to budge, and if Forte wants to dance the silly dance he is surplus to requirements. Front office aren't going to want to be dicked around and they could free up some cash at the same time. If he's getting moved, he gets moved tomorrow.

    Lamar Williams is still there. Phil might think a 4th and a 5th for Forte is enough. We draft Lamar and still have 4 picks left.

  • MB's right, we still need to better protect the franchise.

  • In reply to Shady:

    thank you shady. Please see my post above.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I hate to disappoint you guys but according to some of the guys on Sirius, they think our oline will be fine now that Martz is adios.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    The sack total will diminish by at least a 3rd due to play calling alone. Martz was a masochist. It was clear by his play calling. No mentally stable coordinator would do what Martz did in certain games.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    I think we know that ourselves Trac. Talking heads don't know our football team better than we do. We were doing okay at 7-3. Remove Martz, figure in Tice and an extra off-season, maybe a few positional changes ... getting Webb out of there, bringing him back in on obvious running downs etc. We'll be good to go. Quick slants, screens, dump-offs, bootleg right .... we'll be fine.

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    damn it

  • Glad that we now have WRs that are not munchin Smurfs. Have a good feeling about Jeffrey, as long as he stays away from the donuts. BTW, lots of people down on Mclellin, but he will be a beast. Non stop motor. Glass at least 2/3 full now boys....

  • In reply to GuinnessPlease:

    A lot of good things happen when you play 100% and never give up on a play.

  • In reply to GuinnessPlease:

    I haven't seen anyone with a brain or a competent professional career say anything bad about Shea, just a funny blog comment about his face being too small for his head.

    Are the Giants actually shopping Osi? Wouldn't he have been traded today?

  • Lions....eh? Not a great pick. Not that I'm complaining.

  • Still need OT, DT, S, CB

  • In reply to Shady:

    OT? what's left .

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    yeah, coming off the board fast now. Konz, Adams, etc...

  • In reply to lobotobear:

    Sanders
    Mosely
    Massie
    McCan'ts

  • In reply to Shady:

    I like Massie and Sanders, in that order.

  • In reply to Shady:

    OT, DB, LD in that order pls

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    LB

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Another LB? How about some SIZE up front to protect the LBs we have!

  • does anyone find it weird when these fucking nerd ass fans at the draft boo a fucking past player there as a presenter?

  • yeah, I was like... why in thee fuck are they booing a badass like Westbrook. Ridiculous. Bunch of fucking meatballs. Morons.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    What else do you expect from Philly fans?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    or booing guys that played or were drafted before they were 7yrs old.

  • youth has little respect
    for historical talent

  • They're Jets fans Johnny. Nothing more needs to be said.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Well it would be Giants fans booing, no? Philly don't even play in the Jets conference.

  • dabearsblog Can someone explain to me the appeal of Chris Berman? Does anyone actually like him? He provides no insight, intelligence or entertainment.

    No chris burman is a fucking black hole for talent. He is a hack in every sense of the word.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    of talent.... fuck me.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    For is probably right... I imagine the talents of others that spend too much time around him also disappear.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    back in his early carreer
    he was uniquely different
    enthusiatic..the name thing
    but, he is getting
    like howard cossell
    in his later days
    same old schtick

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I think he's great! Just because he's loud. obnoxious, talks way too much. hasn't said anything funny in 15 years, has no real knowledge of sports and sucks up relentlessly to the power structure (at ESPN and the NFL), I don't know why you don't like him MB! Jeesh, some people!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    remember when he was
    a poster boy for the
    weight loss food system

  • damn, tampa are getting MUCH better. GREAT draft so far!

    Next year.... OL, LB, DB, LB, OL, DL

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    next year for us I meant.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Tampa NEED to get better. Especially at the QB position. Ha.

  • Watching the numerous 1 handed grabs in the video is friggin Sweet. Don't recall any grabs like those EVER from our WRs. Emery cloth at least has some Stones to make a move for yet another WR. Now get a F*ckin Tackle so Cutty won't end up on IR again.

  • In reply to GuinnessPlease:

    cutler has got to
    be dreaming some
    giant dreams
    i would love to be
    inside his thoughts right now
    he has been so patient
    sucking it up
    soldiering on through the
    extreme criticism
    now he has some
    weapons to express his artistry
    on the canvas at the lakefront

  • at or near the end of the 2nd I'll try to post the Top Rated players still available for Da Bears.

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm SUPER HYPED!

    Even cracked opened a beer.

  • party on
    this is indeed a time
    to celebrate

  • Fuck. CB Casey Hayward was a guy the Pats were looking at, not on the Pack.

    Hopefully, there won't be a CB run.

  • In reply to huntinbare:

    I heard the Wanee shows were really good. One of my friends brought his two boys, who are about 11 and 8. The 11 year old plays guitar and studies every live show. He must have loved it. He was a "guest" musician at an island party on the Mississippi this summer, and they played Cortez the Killer. It was killer.

    Here's a good tribute to Levon Helm from the day that he died, just before Wanee. It made the hairs stand up a few times.

  • UGH Fuck the Pack. They are getting us back for taking McClellin. They've had a solid draft.

  • God Damn it.

  • If Jeffery has a work ethic issue, let's just go ahead and cut Roy now so he never meets him.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    A fine plan!

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Again, Roy is not a Chicago Bear. He does not play for the Bears. As Master Yoda would say : On the roster he is not.

    Can we cut Knox and Sanzdropper now please? When we cut Sanzy we'll only have one rookie receiver and a bunch of vet pros.

  • Trumane in 3 and OL in 4 please. Frank A in 5.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    trumane gone

  • 4E,Zeitler was gone in the first round.....take him off that 31 spot

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    Oh shoot, you're right!

    Was trying to cut and paste and eliminate too quickly. That was a bit of a reach in the 1st.

  • Loved Rich Eisen's reaction to the Punter

  • Phil "sploosh" Emery. THE MAN

  • Roll the dice with TE Charles Olsen and lock and load O?

  • TE Ladarius Green is a 6'5 4.49 prospect who intrigues me.

  • We have five TEs on the roster, so any signing is just a camp body behind Davis and Spaeth. Wasted pick. The name alone screams no. If we go OL I hope it's Molk the center - he'd be our starter one day, and the idea of Chris Spencer going in for Garza just frightens the crap out of me. Neither man has broken into the top 30 centers in the NFL. Doesn't that concern anybody?

  • CB Alfonso Dennard might be worth a look.

    If it weren't for getting busted for weed, that is.

  • Speaking of weed, there's a Clitoris Jenkins v Alshon Jeffery vid on YT. Clitoris ate his lunch.

  • Broncos had a real reach in the second. Their draft kinda sucks.

    The best part of that vid is you can see Forte jumping up and down when he saw Bennett lay the wood.

    Man, I seriously hope we play the Saints again. I want Pepp, Lach and Briggs to tear that mole off Brees' face for all the douchbagery down in NawOlens

    I'm still mad about that Bush taunting Lach b.s.

    (I can hold a grudge like an ugly nun).

  • I think Bears have to go OL, DL or S here.

  • Dennard?

  • Massie still there.

  • Hardin, don't know anything about him. Like the size though!

  • Hardin? Not graded real high for this round

  • Love the NFL Network Caption when they showed the Bears Draft Party.

    "Missed playoffs 5 out of last 8 years."

    I can just envision Lovie, "No, we made it once out of the last two years. That's a 50% playoff ratio. Not too bad, if you ask me."

  • Well, how many teams played in the NFC title game in the past two years?

  • Complimentary white safety!

  • nfl network say he
    will be a big hittin safety

  • I really dont understand the pick, I understand safety....I thought Dennard, or Massie or.....................I hope this prick doesnt turn into JA part 2

  • Positives: Possesses intriguing upside. Combines prototypical size, speed and explosiveness for the free safety position and could remain at cornerback in a press-man scheme. Excellent straight-line speed (officially recorded at 4.44, 4.43 at his March 16 Pro Day), as well as impressive explosiveness (10'4" broad jump, 35.5" vertical) and strength (24 reps). Physical. Provides a physical jolt to receivers and shows surprisingly loose hips and acceleration to turn and run with them. Aggressive, reliable open-field tackler with strong, active hands to rip at the ball. Forced three fumbles in 2010... Reads run aggressively and attacks the action. Excellent special teams defender. Tied for the team-lead with 12 special teams tackles in 2010 and led the Beavers with 11 in 2009. ...

  • Is there a running bet with the bears organization to see if we can get a guy killed on the field???

    Get a motherfucking offensive lineman you stupid fucking cocksucking whores. Why do we need another average white fucking safety. why god why????

    "CAREER: Brandon's promising career at cornerback was cut short at Oregon State midway through fall camp 2011 by a broken shoulder requiring season-ending surgery ... he was expected to start at cornerback for the Beavers in 2011 but still finished his career with 15 starts including all 12 games in 2010 ..."

    BTW, Really? Another white fucking safety?!?!?!?!?!

  • I hope when this season starts we look at Emery and go AMAZING! Hope we dont say , Are you fucking kiddin me?

    FS Brandon Hardin

    6'3 217 4.48

    Positives:

    Excellent size and athletic ability. Has played corner and safety and has extensive experience locked in man coverage. Good balance, hip flex, change of direction and body control for his size. Can turn and run vertical. Zone-aware. Supports the run aggressively. Heavy hitter. Plays with awareness and football intelligence. Has the traits and mentality for special teams. Outstanding character and makeup.
    Negatives:

    Could improve press technique. Average pedal fluidity. Lacks ideal explosion and recovery burst to survive on an island. Stressed by smaller, quicker receivers (gives up separation at the top of stems). Minimal ball production. Does not always arrive under control to tackle. At times gets wired to blocks. Relatively inexperienced (only one full season as a starter).
    Summary:

    Intriguing size-speed prospect who looks like a safety and was athletic enough to play corner in college. Has desirable intangibles and at worst should be a versatile, valuable backup and core special-teams player. Has more upside than former OSU safety Sabby Piscitelli, who was overdrafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2007.
