Alshon Jeffery Interview: Bears Wide Receiver Eager To Learn From WR Brandon Marshall

SB Nation's Amy K. Nelson met with newly-drafted WR Alshon Jeffery and got his impressions of the NFL Draft and his new teammates on the Chicago Bears:

The South Carolina Gamecocks product is currently in Los Angeles for the NFL Player's Association Rookie Weekend, and asked what he and the other rookies have done in LA, Jeffery reported he had tasted of full medley of the city:

We went to the mall. Hit up a few club spots ... And we went to Roscoe's Chicken, and I've never had that.

And what did he get at Roscoe's?

Some chicken and waffles! ... It was really good.

And what can he learn from WR Brandon Marshall?

Everything about becoming a Pro Bowl receiver and a great player. Whatever he tells me to do, whatever I need to do, to whatever I need to work on. I'm sure he's gonna tell me a lot, and I'm going to listen.

Marshall and Jeffery both join a Chicago Bears team that had the 7th fewest passing yards in the league with 3011 and 8th fewest passing touchdowns with just 18.
