Brandon Marshall claims Alshon Jeffery is the 2nd best WR in the NFL

NFL Media’s Mark Kriegel asked the Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall how he’d rank the league’s top receivers.

Marshall conceded that Calvin Johnson’s numbers put him at the top. But who else is ahead of Marshall?

“Alshon Jeffery,” Marshall said.

When pressed on why he’d rank the Bears’ second-year receiver above himself, Marshall said it had to do with the strides Jeffery made this season. But that doesn’t mean he’s lost faith in himself.

“We are two different receivers,” Marshall said. “…If I had to build an organization the first receiver I’d pick is myself. I have that much confidence in myself.”

Marshall might be just blowing his teammate’s spirit up, but Jeffery has been pretty darn impressive.
