WR Alshon Jeffery
from South Carolina.
The former Gamecock had 8 touchdown catches last season, as part of a season with 49 receptions for 762 yards. This represents a small drop-off coming from his 2010 season, but the Gamecocks suffered from inconsistent quarterbacking last season.
The Bears have chosen a tool which could be very beneficial lining up on the other side of the field from Marshall.
