Alshon Jeffery rookie cards may be some of the most undervalued cards in the hobby. The Bears receiver has shown he has the ability to become one the NFL’s most dominating players at his position. The Bears viewed Alshon as the wide receiver with the best hands and body control in the draft. “He’s strong. He’s tough,” GM Phil Emery says. “He doesn’t go down without a fight.” Opponents in the Southeastern Conference discovered as much when Jeffery was in South Carolina, where he took All-American accolades from two organizations in 2010. Jeffery is known for having secured some of the most amazing catches in college football the past three years.
Jeffery often makes the acrobatic catch look routine. He exhibits outstanding hand-eye coordination and body control. He often turns simple routes into big gainers with his open-field slipperiness. He has demonstrated that he is nearly impossible to cover one on one. Jeffery also has the ability to accelerate to top speed quickly. He is strong enough to bull his way through tackles after the catch. Alshon has teamed up with Brandon Marshall in Chicago to give Bears quarterback Jay Cutler two outstanding red zone weapons. He is sometimes compared to Calvin Johnson of the Lions and Jerry Rice of the 49ers.
