The Bears traded up five places in the second round to be sure they landed South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, selecting him with the 13th pick of the round, 45th overall.
They got a physical receiver who doesn't lack in size (6-2, 220 pounds) or confidence.
Asked at the NFL Scouting Combine about the quality of his hands as a receiver, Jeffery was direct:
I feel like Ive got the best hands, Jeffery said, then smiled. In my opinion.
Do you have better hands than Justin Blackmon chosen No. 5 by Jacksonville?
Im sure hed say hes got better hands than me, so I'm just gonna say I got the best hands, Jeffery said, laughing.
