The Chicago Bears swapped 2nd round picks with the St. Louis Rams, and also gave up their 5th round selection, to draft

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.
