Chicago Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery has been named the NFL's most improved player in 2013, by the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA).

The 2012 second-round pick from South Carolina has had a break out year for the Bears.

 Ranked sixth in the NFL among receivers with 1,421 yards (the second most in franchise history), he was also 10th with 89 receptions through 2013.

His stats were aided by two impressive displays in particular. 

With 249 yards against the Vikings and 218 yards versus the Saints, Jeffery recorded the two most prolific receiving games in Bears history in 2013 - beating Harlon Hill's record which had stood since 1954.

Jeffery can now add this award to his invitation to the Pro Bowl.

In winning the award he has also become the third straight receiver to do so after Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant (2012), and Giants receiver Victor Cruz (2011).
