Jeffery set a Gamecocks record with 3,042 career receiving yards.  A year ago, he was projected to be a first-round pick; however, the wide receiver's sub par numbers in 2011 hurt his draft stock this year. At 6-3, 216 pounds, Jeffery will give quarterback Jay Cutler another solid throwing target along with recently acquired Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
