I never trust a man with two first names, but “Alshon” isn’t exactly a common first name and “Jeffery” isn’t a typical spelling of that name, so I’ll let this one slide. The Bears 2012 second-round pick was a popular sleeper going into last season, and I’d venture to guess he’ll be on many sleeper lists again this year (including this one). Before breaking his hand last season, Jeffery was off to a decent start (two touchdowns in his first five games) and provided the Bears with another receiving option not named Brandon Marshall. The former South Carolina Gamecock was a tad rusty upon his return last season, but he did finish with 50-plus yards in two of his last three games and should be able to provide Jay Cutler with another trusted option in 2013. Jeffery will more than likely slide towards the end of your draft this year and should provide great value to the discerning owner willing to take a flier on him.
