He reminds me a lot of Plaxico Burress but thicker. Plex ran 4.59 @ his combine, expect something similar from AJ.
Nothing new you ask yourself? Apparently not, pulled this from an old clip circa 2000 & this is what was said about him "As long as Burress has been draft-eligible--and probably longer--whispers have echoed about his undeveloped work ethic. Some scouts see a receiver with the ability to dominate his position but who doesn't seem to show up for every game, let alone every play.
I think the main issue for Jeffrey will be weight and speed. There are rumors the man has ballooned up into the 250lb range. And that was not doing the buffet circuit, that was prior to his senior year. If he really is around 250lbs and puts up an iffy 40 time, I want no part of him. At the NFL level the successful guys aren't the ones with the most talent, but the guys who put in the work off the field becuase they LOVE the game. The NFL combine is a job interview. Showing up out of shape tells me that he doesn't LOVE the game.
My favorite example is Zach Taylor. Coming out of college he was an undersized LB with decent talent. But he put in the time off the field and ate, drank, and slept football. He ended up being an 8 time probowler and likely Hall of Famer. THAT's the guy I want, not some guy who couldn't be bothered to show up in game shape ready to go.
