Alshon Jeffery rumor <THREAD CLOSED>

" WR Alshon Jeffery, #SouthCarolina is training at St Vincents here in Indy. Sources say he's weighing 249lbs + running a 4.88 Forty#NFLDraft "

- Joe Everett

Michael Schottey @Schottey
Confirmed...Alshon Jeffery has been in Tampa since January 8th. IF he ran a 4.88 in Indianapolis, it was over a month ago.

Is there anything legal that Jeffery can do about this? It seems like a defamation of character and this may cost the guy $100ís/k in his contract.

It's not going to cost him a penny for now. If he runs a 4.88 at the combined, then he's got problems.

Even if there was, how would he be able to prove that a tweet cost him his draft status?

Most of the mud on players gets slung around the week leading up to the draft anyway. And that's done generally on purpose by anonymous team sources so that they have a chance at drafting that player in a later round. Shoot... Mark Ingram is a recent example of this. Around April 13th last year, word came out that his knee injury was worse than reported and that teams were taking him off the draft board.

The draft was two weeks later and he almost fell out of the first round. He did have some injuries this year, but it was to his heel and toe, and both probably weren't as bad as it seemed from the time that he missed... simply because the Saints were relatively healthy all year at RB and had a healthy Chris Ivory ready to play if Mark got hurt.

Mayock said heís heard whispers of Jefferyís suspect conditioning, rumors that may have begun with this picture, believed to have been taken just before the 2011 college season. (Jeffery, No. 1, is on the far left.) For this yearís receiver class, Mayock has first-round grades on Oklahoma Stateís Justin Blackmon, Baylorís Kendall Wright, Notre Dameís Michael Floyd, and LSUís Rueben Randle.

He doesnít have one on Jeffery.

I don't see how the truth about a player being scouted by hundreds can be defamatory. As long as it can be proven as a fact in court, he can say whatever he wants.

Hope it's true and he falls to us in the 2nd. He could be the 2nd coming of Colston (slower) or Graham.
