Pre-Combine rumors swirled that South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffery might show up to Indianapolis overweight. Jeffery apparently reacted to the speculation, shedding a significant amount of pounds and reporting to the Combine at 216 on Friday.
The sudden weight loss begs the question of whether Jeffery has lost strength. He is not used to being so small, and muscle usually goes first when a person is trying to drop pounds rapidly.
Other official measurements from Jeffery’s Friday weigh-in included 10 1/4-inch hands with an 80 1/8-inch wingspan. He is 6-foot-3 and an eighth of an inch tall.
