Out of all of these Gamecocks, Alshon Jeffery looks like he will be the top rookie performer in 2012. It was a toss-up between Jeffery and Stephon Gilmore, but Jeffery could have the biggest impact on his team this season.
Jeffery is known for his big-play potential. His size will be an advantage for the Bears offense under Jay Cutler. The hands are there for Jeffery. He's already shown he can produce in a short time during minicamp, and the Bears plan to get him more involved and see what he can do.
Devin Hester is listed as the starter opposite of Marshall, but Hester has still yet to make an impact as a wide receiver in the NFL. He could be better-suited for certain situations this season, leaving open the chance for the big receiver from South Carolina to start.
A tandem of Marshall and Jeffery should provide two big targets for Cutler to throw to this year. Jeffery was a red-zone target for the Gamecocks with his leaping ability, so expect the Bears to give him the shot to do the same this season.
If Jeffery can shore up his route-running sooner than later, look for a big season from the Gamecock rookie with a lot to prove.
This offense clicked last year with Cutler in the lineup, and that was without Marshall and Jeffery on the team. Throw those two in the mix, and you could be talking about the Bears offense for a change.
Jeffery was a great pick for Chicago this year, and he could be a great receiver for years to come.
