He didn’t tear up the track in the 40, but at 6’3″ 213 pounds, South Carolina WR Alshon Jeffery just needed to be respectable in the 40 and pretty good at everything else at his pro day Wednesday. Mission accomplished.
According to Gamecocksonline.com Jeffery had a 10’2″ broad jump and 35.5-inch vertical leap. As for his 40 times they were in an acceptable range for a player his size albeit not elite.
Tony Pauline Alshon Jeffery/WR/South Carolina timed 4.47 seconds on 2nd forty…hearing some watches had him slightly faster on the first attempt; 4.54s
Update: there are additional reports that Jeffery stumbled out of his stance on 2nd 40, which might explain the slower time from the first attempt. Either way Jeffery is widely considered one of the top 5 wideouts in this year’s draft class and could go as early as late round one in late April.
