Chicago Bears Trade Up, Draft WR Alshon Jeffery

The Chicago Bears traded up to the 45th overall selection in a deal with the St. Louis Rams and selected wide receiver Alshon Jeffery from South Carolina.

Jeffery is considered an elite playmaker when it comes to going up and getting the ball. He's listed at 6-3 and 216 pounds and had 49 catches for 762 yards and eight touchdowns for South Carolina last year. He will be a huge threat in the red zone, partnering with Brandon Marshall to give Jay Cutler two legit weapons in the end zone.
